FREN 3103

Beginning French I

Level 100 is intended for students with no or minimal 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 aptitudes (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.
Free-form classroom interactions are balanced with structured grammar, vocabulary and phonetics drills. 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 navigate a variety of real-world situations.
Performances and progress will be assessed on a weekly basis through grammatical, lexical, phonetics, and written compositions.
Individual participation in class will be part of the overall evaluation.
The course is divided into five teaching units: grammar in action 1(3101), grammar in action 2 (3102), applied phonetics (3103), written expression and civilization (3104) and interactive oral production (3105).
