    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is always nice to learn a new language and if you already know how to speak Spanish or want to learn a beautiful language. It is fun to learn the language and the culture of french speaking countries throughout the world.

    Course highlights:

    Learning a new language itself was a highlight of the course. It is always fun to know more than one language since learning a new one can open a new world of opportunities. It was really awesome being able to start noticing and to read french words on everyday products and to read or watch media in French. Also it breaks the language barrier if you wanted to go to France or another French-speaking country and put the french to use. Also it helped when running across French words or words of French origin in textbooks or in my classes since I would be able to pronounce it and/or know the meaning of the word.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Obviously, knowing another romantic language like Spanish helps when learning french and it's grammar structure, but it really helps to be enthusiastic about learning the language and to put the effort learn the words and to pronounce words correctly. Practicing French with friends in your class also helps as well as use flash cards to learn new words.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend all students to take French as their foreign language, preferably starting their freshman year. Students should eventually take this course because the teacher who is educating the students, John McFarland, treats the class as if it were a university course, meaning that there is a lot of note taking and lessons that he shows in which we have the option to take notes or not. Many previous alumni who had Mr. Mac have stated that his class is very similar to those that they take at their university. Apart from the similarity it has to a college level class, students who take this class, or French for four year, and pass the Advanced Placement exam in May, are eligible to receive the Seal of Biliteracy, which means that they are fluent in that foreign language. This in turn would provide students with a job if they so choose to since it is a very valuable talent to speak more that their primary language. Also, if there are any students who speak English and Spanish, taking French would help them improve their skills in Spanish since French and Spanish are so very similar languages that have many similarities.

    Course highlights:

    For the most part, the year in French was extremely fast. The course was very fun and my class always has many laughs, but there is also many times where one needs to be serious. I have learned that it is very important to further study the material given, and when the professor assigns reading homework that is just reading, everyone should make sure to actually read the textbook pages assigned, especially once Mr. Mac begins to go over the tenses in French. Look at many example as well, and it is important to remember to treat the course as a fun course, that would greatly help you learn the material in a better lighting.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Spend time everyday to look over material, unless you wish to have a C in the class, which will not let you have the Seal of Biliteracy. Also, do not wait until the last minute to study for any exams or quizzes, most of our class did and as a result we all received a C-F average on our quizzes and tests in regards to the multiple French tenses. Also, do a lot of extra credit since Mr. Mac has gameified the class, which means that nothing is weighted when grading. Do not wait until the last minute to turn in extra credit since he has it open all semester. Do not be lazy on those days where you just want to do nothing; do something else you will regret it later on when the hard final comes around.
