Course Description

 Course Description:

In the French 2 class, students will build on the foundation established in French 1. Students
will develop strategies to build their vocabulary, continue to refine their pronunciation and begin
to move beyond the present tense, describing events in the past and the future. Students will
focus on understanding how to use the ‘passé composé’ and the ‘imparfait’. In addition to
speaking and listening, we will continue to develop skills in reading and writing. French culture
and its influences in art and literature will be woven into the lessons.
In French 2 students will expand their vocabulary about sports, health, travel, shopping and
French culture, history and literature.

    “In my search for a French teacher for my daughter, we were blessed to find Mrs. Barstow. She was well known and highly recommended in the home school network. My daughter loved her class and learned so much during her time with Mrs. Barstow. She made learning the language fun by engaging the students in conversation, and giving the students an opportunity to showcase what they had learned during the Christmas and end of year celebrations. During these celebrations students would prepare skits and present them to the parents. The students were encouraged to try French cuisine and prepared dishes to share with family and friends. We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to be blessed by Mrs. Barstow’s love for the French language and culture which was so evident in her teaching. “ Dorothy S., Fredericksburg, VA

    My daughter is taking French 2 with Ms. Barstow and loves her class. Ms. Barstow makes the class engaging and interactive and offers very encouraging remarks and suggestions. She has a talent for teaching hard concepts without making it too daunting or serious. My daughter is navigating the course mostly on her own and enjoys doing her homework assignments. The online interface is easy to use and Sally is very organized and prompt with posting homework assignments, grading etc. She also enjoys the French conversation class that Sally offers for additional practice. We are very happy with class and hoping to continue with her next year for French 3.

Instructor Bio

Sally Barstow

I received my BA in French from Mary Washington College.  During my college years, I studied at the Université de Dijon in Dijon, France.  Visits to Belgium have allowed me to keep in contact with the Belgian side of my family.  My 25 years as an educator have found me teaching all levels of French: from public school and private school elementary foreign language programs to High School French I-IV, primarily with homeschoolers.  I am currently teaching beginning adult immersion courses at the Alliance Française, a world-wide organization established to promote the French language.  I love speaking French and helping others acquire the ability to do so as well.
