Designed for students with little to no knowledge of French, this course focuses on acquiring 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 be able to read about French and francophone culture. In addition, students will be able to use communication strategies to make and respond to requests, handle phone conversations, and express interests.
