Assignments - Lešon  2

This assignment page will tell you what I want you to turn in as homework. Send me those pages marked with an asterisk *. 

1.

Your first assignment for French in Action Lešon 2 is to review your introductory lessons.  Any of this material could appear on future exams.

Language study is a cumulative thing, not a collection of isolated units, and I will expect you to remember all of the earlier material as we proceed from lesson to lesson.

As a part of your review, I want you run through these sample pages again.  You don't need to send them in since they serve as answers sheets to each other.

Now for something new.  Read the text for lešon 2 (pp. 7-10) and use the text vocabulary sheet  (just click below) to try to figure out what everything means.  Much of what you see in this lesson will be material that we already covered in the introduction.  The better you know the previous lessons, the easier this lesson will be.
