Students will learn to read, speak, write, and understand French while also discovering French and Francophone culture.
This introduction to the French language is designed to establish a strong foundation in the
language which will then be built upon in the years to follow. The focus will be on useful
communication, accurate pronunciation and basic grammar concepts. Skills in listening,
speaking, reading and writing will be introduced. Using the textbook to structure our study of
French, many other resources will be incorporated to provide a broad experience for the class.
Being all about communication, students can anticipate some good exchange with one another.
We will touch upon the vast contributions the French have made in history, art, literature and
culture and why it is spoken on every continent.
