The first progress report for the current semester will go out lundi le 2 mars (Monday, March 2nd). Please plan to attend a tutorial session if your grade is not as strong as you would like. I usually stay after school on Tuesdays, but I can do Thursdays and Fridays with some notice.
French Club has been rescheduled for jeudi le 26 février (Thursday, February 26th). We will be celebrating a delayed Mardi Gras due to the inclement weather.
Français 1 - We have been working on subject pronouns, formal and informal language and regular -er verbs. We are also learning vocabulary to be able to talk about the courses that you take in school. All students have now had the opportunity to try out QUIA. Everyone has a username and password. Practice your skills from home! You can access the site by clicking here -- http://www.quia.com. You can use the assignment sheets distributed in class to help you navigate the site. Also, we discussed some of the customs and traditions regarding Mardi Gras.
Français 2 - We have been working on vocabulary for le cinéma, le théâtre and le musée. We have also been working with the verbs savoir and connaître. Please make sure that you turned in your movie activity -- On va au cinéma. Currently, we are taking a Museum Virtual Tour. Students are selecting trois (3) museums out of five to research in the areas of history, architecture, practical information and the collections/exhibits being shown at the museum. All students have now received usernames and passwords to access QUIA for games, activities and quizzes. You can access the site by clicking here -- http://www.quia.com. Everyone should have a score for the quiz entitled -- Le cinéma et le théâtre. We also discussed Mardi Gras customs and traditions.
For this week's challenge question, I want to know the exact date of Mardi Gras 2016. Bonne chance! Ciao!
