French 3: Elementary French, 3rd Quarter

This 5-unit course is the third quarter of elementary French. The prerequisite is French 2 or the equivalent (2 quarters of college-level French or 2 years of high school French). See important prerequisite information below.

If you are not sure which level of French you should take, please contact me and I will try to help you make that determination.

Textbook: In Fall 2014, French 3 classes at De Anza use the 5th edition of Vis-à-vis (blue cover), by Amon, Muyskens and Omaggio Hadley, McGraw-Hill Co., 2011. French 3 covers Chapters 12 through 16 of Vis-à-vis.


If you wish to sign up for level 2 or higher of any language, and did NOT complete the prerequisite course at De Anza or Foothill College, you must complete a prerequisite clearance application AND an equivalency evaluation form. Instructions and applications can be found here:
and the equivalency evaluation form can be found here:
The World Languages evaluation process is a voluntary task, and faculty are RARELY able to evaluate applications immediately. Please plan to submit your application and transcripts at least THREE weeks PRIOR to your registration date for the quarter in which you wish to take the world language course. Otherwise, the prerequisite may not be cleared in time for you to register for the course.
