Beginning French I

Level 1 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, and 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.
