The American School, a leader in distance education since 1897, is pleased to announce that students in French 1 and French 2 can now take their exams online. The addition of these two courses brings the total number of paper-based courses with online exam options up to 44, more than half the American School's total paper-based curriculum.

French 1 provides an introduction to grammatical principles and vocabulary. Their correct usage is emphasized in numerous exercises and dialogues. The course includes the study of the present and passé composétenses of regular and irregular verbs, pronouns, adjectives, idiomatic expressions and sentence structure. A CD to help students with their pronunciation is provided at no additional charge. In completing this subject students complete numerous exercises requiring the use of appropriate vocabulary and grammatical structures for a wide variety of everyday scenarios. In addition, students read passages in French and answer questions about the passages using complete French sentences. Translation from English to French is also a skill developed in this course.

French 2 expands on the grammatical principles and vocabulary students learned in French 1. It emphasizes correct usage in context and thinking “in French” through the use of visuals and dialogue formats. Verb tenses covered include the passé composé (review), the imperfect, the future, the conditional, and the present subjunctive. In completing this subject students complete numerous exercises requiring the use of appropriate vocabulary and grammatical structures for a wide variety of everyday scenarios.
