As a part of the requirements of the course, students are expected to attend live sessions with any French IV instructor (1 session/unit). The dates/times of live sessions will be provided in this section of the newsletter each week. The instructor will communicate with students in course announcements should there be any change.

* No session scheduled this week


To access the live classroom, students should click the link in Blackboard titled "Live Classroom French 4." It is suggested that for the first time they arrive approximately 15 minutes early to ensure that they are able to enter the chat room and check the functionality of all tools. Students should log in with both their first and last names, or if attending by teleconference, they should identify themselves to the instructor upon entry.

Last week, people around the world celebrated the holiday of Mardi Gras. Qu'est-ce que c'est Mardi Gras? Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday, is a Christian holiday celebrated the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. Christians who observe this holiday celebrate by attending parades and festivals, and indulgent eating of cakes and sweets before the solemn period of repentance during Lent. Different countries and cities host their own celebrations, each with unique features. The largest celebration in the United States is in New Orleans, Louisiana. Click the title above to visit the official page Mardi Gras page of NOLA to learn more about "local" Mardi Gras celebrations.
