Bienvenue! Welcome! I am delighted you have chosen French as your foreign language! I hope that you find the study of a foreign language to be fun and rewarding! You have already proven that you can learn a language by speaking your native tongue. Stay alert, pay attention, and do what I ask you to do, and you will be amazed by how much French you will acquire!
This year will be a new adventure as we will be a paperless classroom. All notes and handouts will be available through Office 365, and all assignments and assessments will submitted and graded through Schoology, Aiken County’s new Learning Management system.
Our use of technology in the class-room will go beyond simple substitution of paper with a word processor. We will not only have access to authentic use of French through videos and media outlets, we will have access to tools for recording practice work, creating dynamic videos practicing the language, and engaging with class content like never before. Additional resources will be readily available to students who need additional support before moving on to the next skill though video tutorials and exercises.
Recommended supports from home:
Enrolling in the course on Schoology using a Smartphone, home computer or tablet
Installing Quizlet app to practice vocabulary and grammar, and Word Reference app as the best French/English dictionary
Parents can access all resources/assignments currently on Schoology, and they can check on grades and completion by the students in real time. Please the PDF below on instructions on how to log-in to a parent account.
