Thank you for your visit. This is a work in progress and I appreciate your indulgence while I’m improving it. The page is primarily for parents and my students, to keep them abreast of what’s happening in my classes. I hope parents will find this to be a valuable tool of information and communication. As for students, Google.classroom will remain our main medium of exchange. There, you will find your daily agenda, links and other work prepared for you. You will also find worksheets that are permanently saved to avoid any consumption by your pets or younger siblings as they are kin of them.
About Mr. Yonga
Friendly referred to by students as Mister Y., I am a native speaker of French from Cameroon who emigrated to the U.S in the spring of 2001. Since then, my American journey has taken me to unsuspected places from coast to coast.

That adds to my Bachelors in Spanish from the University of Yaoundé in Cameroon in 1996. I am currently finishing my dissertation for a doctorate degree in International Education at NorthCentral University. My emphasis is on technology in world language instruction.
Besides teaching, I am passionate about traveling.I have now visited four continents and Intend to visit all of them. The top of my bucket list is to go around the world in eighty days... Yes, the famous French author Jules Verne is my favorite author and Around the world in Eighty days is my favorite book.

What is French 2?
French 2 is the intermediate level of instruction and learning of the language. Here, students will strengthen the basics acquired in French 1. They will also learn new concepts as they are getting prepared for the advanced level. These concepts range from grammar to vocabulary, history and geography of French speaking countries and France.
Activities used to achieve these goals include songs, games, movies, readings, note taking and projects. The list is not exhaustive as our objective is to combine fun and learning. Discuss with your child to learn more about what we do in class.
