Curriculum

LGE101
French Language Skills 1
Availability
 

This is an introductory course for students with minimal or no previous French experience that enables the student to embark in the process of becoming bilingual. In this course, students will learn the basic structures and vocabulary of the French language. Interactive work will enable students to acquire the basic skills of fluency(speaking, listening, reading, and cultural awareness) and written French, allowing students to communicate in the classroom and in real life situations. This course is the first of six and emphasizes language acquisition through student participation in listening activities, question/answer and pattern/structure practice, role-playing in skits based on real-life situations and free conversation. Opportunity is provided in class to use the structures and content in the different units that are covered.
