Welcome to the Web site for the classes of Madame Naditz.
Explore the menu on the left and the links at the top right for resources.
Go to http://quizlet.com/user/nnaditz/. Scroll down to “subjects” on the left and look at the cards created for French 1, French 2, French 3, and French 4 (also good for AP). When the list appears, pick the topic you would like to study and let the program do the rest: traditional flashcards, games with the vocabulary on the cards, and even a test to see how you're doing. You can even export the flashcards to your computer or smartphone! Feel free to use class lists from other levels of French to get ahead or to review material you learned earlier.

Students will continue to build on the foundation begun in French 1. They will add several new vocabulary themes, including descriptions, foods/cuisine, sports and hobbies and daily routine. In addition, they will begin to learn more complex sentence structures that will enable them to talk about events that already happened and to refer to people and things that have already been mentioned. They will continue to develop knowledge of the cultural products, practices and perspectives of the French-speaking world.
In French 3, students will review previously-learned material and learn how to talk about things that will and could happen, how to narrate stories in the past, and how to express their will and wishes.At the end of this year, students will have all of the tools needed to communicate at an early intermediate level about a variety of topics. They will continue to develop knowledge of the cultural products, practices and perspectives of the French-speaking world.
In French 4 and AP, students review previously-learned material and build upon it to use more sophisticated features of the language in communicative situations while perfecting their control over basic grammatical structures. In addition, students will work to greatly expand their vocabulary.At the end of this year, students will have all of the tools needed to communicate at an intermediate level about a variety of topics. AP students also receive specific instruction and practice in each part of the AP language exam to be taken in May.

Remember that the textbook has a companion web site. Students can find additional practice and quizzes (with immediate feedback) and also flash cards with pronunciation and activities. Click on "My Links" (top right of the Web page) and then scroll to your class and click on "Classzone" (for levels one through three). Level 4 students have already created accounts on the web site that accompanies their textbook and AP students also have accounts for their textbook and also for their workbooks. They will at times be assigned homework that is submitted directly to me via this web site.
Additional resources are also available at "my links", including streaming audio and video to perfect students' listening comprehension.
