"Elementary French II is a carefully sequenced and highly interactive presentation of French language and culture in a media-rich course environment including new video shot in France and Quebec with young professional actors. It is designed to be used as a full course of study."
"Each course is divided into fifteen thematic lessons. Each lesson is designed to take approximately one week to complete so working through an entire course will take the average learner approximately fifteen weeks. Completing this course and the prior course (Elementary French 1) will require two semesters or roughly thirty weeks at the university level. At the secondary level these courses have been extended to cover two years or more."
Each lesson opens with a video dramatization that sets the context for the lesson. Parts of the video are then replayed in a variety of interactive activities and tutors. Each video in the course was written specifically to serve as the foundation for the lesson in which it is used. These high quality videos were produced with French actors on location in France (Nantes) and Quebec (Montreal) so the speech, movements and contexts are authentic.
The beginning of each lesson is always a set sequence, from simple recognition of language in a video dialogue, through explicit learning of grammar and pronunciation, to written and spoken production of variations on that language. After this ordered beginning, a number of activities are offered to the student in which the language learned is used in understanding new texts, sounds or videos or in creative production (conversation or writing). Lesson tests and final exams, generated from extensive question pools, portions of which are automatically graded, are available to students enrolled in instructor-led courses. The Learning Dashboard allows for at-a-glance evaluation by instructors of student progress based on each lesson’s learning objectives."
