For students with little or no knowledge of French, this course focuses on the acquisition of basic communication skills using a creative, all-in-French, conversational approach in a fun and relaxed class atmosphere. By the end of the course, students will be able to talk about their own and others’ personalities, activities, hobbies, families, and studies; and they will read about French and francophone culture. In addition, students will be able to use communicative strategies, including making and responding to requests, handling phone conversations, and expressing interests.

This is the first course in a three-course sequence. The textbook assigned for “Beginning French I” will also be used for Levels II (Winter 2017) and III (Spring 2017). Students may enroll in this introductory course without intending to take all three courses in the sequence.

Heather Howard, Lecturer in French, Stanford

Heather Howard has taught French at several institutions, including Stanford, UCLA, USC, and Scripps College. She received a PhD in 18th-century French literature from UCLA.
