FREN101 - French II
Course Code: FREN101 Course ID: 3005 Credit Hours: 3 Level: Undergraduate
This course is a continuation of FREN100, French I. Students will continue to build vocabulary and be introduced to more advanced grammatical usage. In addition to similar—but more advanced—online listening, speaking, reading and writing exercises, students will also learn to communicate in more abstract patterns of thought as demonstrated through the use of cartoons and humor. Please note the technical specifications below. These are required to interface with the online version of Rosetta Stone. If you cannot meet these requirements we strongly recommend you do not take this course. Please contact email@example.com if you are unsure or have any questions. * The ability to download and install the speech component. * A working microphone installed on the computer for speech recognition. * Access to streaming media is also required and should be confirmed before registering for the class.

Technical Support for Rosetta Stone: Here’s how to get in touch
Sometimes students must do a bit of tweaking to configure their machines during week one. Rarely do they experience these issues very long. Proactively calling Rosetta Stone Tech Support will nip these issues quickly in the bud.
They have a remote access technical assistance service that can be very helpful for resolving any issues you might be experiencing. Please do give them a call if you experience problems rather than
exasperating yourselves. J If they are not helpful, let me know so that I can contact our sales representative on your behalf.
