French - First Year I
Compare offerings and share your lists with others.
This year-long sequence of courses in French emphasizes mastery of basic skills through a solid study of grammatical structures and focus on interactive oral activities. Classes use immersion style learning and students are surrounded by authentic French from the start. Student work encompasses all four language skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing. They will develop accurate pronunciation, build a useful vocabulary, work regularly in small groups and learn conversational skills. Classes are lively and fast-paced with a wide variety of creative, fun activities including music, poetry, videos, role-play, and web sites. Through aloud reading and discussions in French, students will acquire vocabulary proficiency, accurate pronunciation, fluidity, and dialogues. Throughout the year, students use the Language Laboratory to accelerate their skills.
To successfully participate in this program, students will need a reliable internet connection to access course activities (synchronous and asynchronous) and content. Our work will be conducted remotely, using Canvas, Zoom, Slack and YouTube. Students will have access to alternatives to synchronous (in person or remote) participation if conditions require.
