This course is for students with no prior knowledge of French. Based on a communicative approach, it will help students learn French vocabulary, understand grammatical structures and concepts, and gain oral and written communication skills. Students will develop their listening, speaking, reading and writing skills through a variety of contextually specific activities. Class periods will include explanations of grammatical concepts, as well as communicative and interactive exercises. In addition to preparation at home, regular class attendance is paramount for student success.
