task.jpg
French II is a course designed to develop confidence toward the target language. In order to reach this ultimate goal, working on French stories is one of the tools we use. This work is organized in a socio-cultural perspective. The students practice the four skills of the foreign language learning: speaking, reading, writing, and listening.

Students will write a story in the target language using the parts of speech outlined below. They will make a digital advertisement for their story using Glogster and they will record an interview with the author(themsleves) which will be included on their advertisement poster. Their story along with the advertisment which will act as the cover, will be present through their wikispace.
