Homework: Learning a second language is demanding. Depending on your goals, a minimum of 30 minutes a day is recommended. To help the memorization of the vocabulary words and grammar rules, different exercises have been developed for this class. There are: recordings for the vocabulary words, or the lesson of the week, where the student can listen and repeat what he hears to develop his speech; quizzes on Caravel; and of course, the exercises from the Student book. Quizlet sets can be developed for some supplemental help. Students will need a headset and the ability to record their homework for speech grading.
