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 communicative strategies to make and respond to requests, handle phone conversations, and express interests.

This is the first course in a three-course sequence. Part II will be offered in Winter 2025, and Part III will be offered in Spring 2025. Students may enroll in this course without intending to take all three courses in the sequence.
