Note: B1.3 is the third and last course of the General French B1 (Intermediate) series, which comprises courses B1.1, B1.2, and B1.3. During these three B1 classes, students will expand their capacity to describe their experiences as well as to begin defending their opinions and ideas. Their vocabulary to discuss areas of personal interest, education, and current events becomes more nuanced, though still remains within the bounds of colloquial language registers. Students learn to describe events in a logical, linear manner (e.g. introduction, development and conclusion), including reporting direct and indirect quotes, thus allowing them to better present accounts of current and past events and personal anecdotes.

• Content of the B1.3 Course: Chapters 7 & 8; Review B1—indirect discourse; compare and contrast different types of education; discuss news and medias (passive voice); etc.

• Course Type: Online. Please keep in mind that online courses are limited to six students. If the course is full, please let us know your interest, and we will try to open an additional class.

• Course Pace: Hybrid, 10 weeks, once per week, 2H per session on Zoom + 60 minutes of independent, online exercises. Total: 30 hours (20 hours of class time + 10 hours of independent study).
