Since I have taught French most of my career, it is sad that it has been removed once again from the schedule, this time starting 09-10 and perhaps permanently. This is the second time that it has been cut throughout the decades, so it could come back again hopefully some day. However, in the meantime, I have left some French links on my website for students to get a feel for the language before high school. These links are found under "Resources" and then "Links." Students going to college really need two years of the same foreign language on their high school transcript. Also, check out the documents about the importance of taking French and the holidays in France! These can be found under "Resources" and then "Downloads." Remember, one third of our words are French, so you have been speaking French since you've learned to talk! Enjoy!
