French Beginner 2

If you can ask and answer simple questions about yourself and are ready to advance your conversation skills French Beginner 2 is the right choice. Add to your base of vocabulary and expressions in order to communicate in everyday situations involving travel, food, shopping, family, and business. Continue to improve your pronunciation and learn to talk about future plans and express past events.

This immersive course focuses on oral communication skills and uses meaningful scenarios (e.g., buying things in a store) to help you use the language in authentic situations. Practise your new French skills and interact with your classmates in a comfortable atmosphere. For extra practice between classes, you can access resources chosen by your instructor using our online system, Canvas.

If you need to miss a class, French Beginner 2 is offered several times during the week, so you have the opportunity to make up your class on another day if necessary.

Some sections may be offered as Beginner 2/Lower Intermediate classes. Please read more about multi-level teaching here.

This course can be applied to the UBC Award of Achievement in French.

About Online Learning

Our online conversational language courses offer you a real-time virtual classroom experience where you can see and interact with your teacher and classmates. Each week, you log in at a set time to your class using our intuitive learning management platform, Canvas. Through Canvas, you access Zoom, a web conferencing app, for your live class. Just like in a classroom, you do individual, pair and group work, ask questions and receive verbal feedback from your instructor.

Outside of class time, you can access handouts and other materials online at your own pace and rhythm. You might be doing readings or watching videos to prepare for your next class, or practising with the material you have learned in your previous class. You do get out what you put in.

In order for a virtual classroom to be successful, we want to see your faces! Please be prepared to participate with your video turned on. We provide virtual drop-in sessions for you to test out the Zoom app before your first day of class.  We will also send you instructions on accessing Canvas before your course begins.
