Beginning French I

Level 1 is intended for students with no previous experience with the French language. The course emphasizes communicative proficiency, with special attention to the development of oral and listening skills, self-expression, and cultural insights. Classroom activities are varied and interactive and are focused on acquiring all four language competencies (listening, speaking, reading, and writing) simultaneously-always in the context of a cultural narrative. Each lesson begins with a rapid flow of authentic French presented in realistic, everyday circumstances, supported by video presentations (3101). Free-form classroom interactions (3103) are balanced with structured grammar and vocabulary drills (3102). All in-class activities are task-based and put the students in real-life situations. By the end of this seven-week immersion program, students will be able to easily navigate a variety of real-world situations.
