COURSE OVERVIEW

Rosetta Stone French, Version 3, Levels 1-5 with Audio Companion (Homeschool Edition) with "Practice Makes Perfect" workbooks.

COURSE NOTES

LANGUAGES: Colleges, and hence STAA, require at least two years of foreign language study (20 high school credits; 300 course hours).  We recommend Latin, since it strengthens organized thinking and vocabulary, leads to higher college board exam scores, and teaches Catholic and Classical culture, as well.  There are a variety of Latin programs—Artes Latinae, Wheelock’s, Latina Christiana, and Memoria Press' Form Latin, in that order of preference—but Henle Latin is the Catholic homeschooling favorite.
 
Other foreign languages are acceptable: German, Spanish, French, or Italian.  Consider the easy to use Rosetta Stone program.  "Living Language All the Way, Ultimate: Basic-Intermediate" and "PowerGlide" are great alternatives also.  Language studies that do not include substanstial oral, grammar, and composition components cannot be counted towards the high school graduation requirement.  We suggest students complete at least two "Practice Makes Perfect" workbooks alongside their primary language resource.
 
 

Credit Information for Students in Grades 9 - 12: Credits awarded according to hours reported; 37.5 hours = 2.5cr; 75 hours = 5.0cr; max. 2.5cr per quarter; max. 2.5cr per work sample.

Scheduling Suggestions: At least 2hr 20min each week for 32 weeks = A semester credit (75 hours).
