For students with little to 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 to make and respond to requests, handle phone conversations, and express interests.

This is the first course in a three-course sequence. The textbook assigned for this course will also be used for Levels II (Winter 2019) and III (Spring 2019). Students may enroll in this introductory course without intending to take all three courses in the sequence.

Heather Howard, Lecturer in French, Stanford
