FREN 3103

Beginning French I

Level 1, Beginning French is intended for students with no previous experience with the French language.

The course emphasizes the development of a grammatical foundation and lexical and phonetic proficiency, with special attention given to the development of oral and listening skills, and written communication.

Classroom activities are varied and interactive and are focused on acquiring all four language competencies (listening, speaking, reading, and writing) simultaneously, and always in the context of a cultural narrative.

Classes adhere to a flipped classroom pedagogical model, whereby students are provided with the course materials and resources in advance, creating an active and collaborative learning environment.

By the end of this seven-week immersion program, students will be able to navigate a variety of real-world situations, to communicate about simple topics, to express opinions, to use grammar foundations correctly, and to interact in situations of everyday life, within the scope of the European level criteria A1 at a minimum.
