FR 1114 - Elementary French I (4) F; Summer on demand

An introduction to French language and culture, providing opportunities for literacy development in French through a range of creative activities to develop receptive skills through listening and comprehension activities, and then speaking and writing skills as proficiency in the language grows. Students completing French I will be able to complete basic functions in the target language (counting, describing people, talking about hobbies and activities, asking questions, etc.) and will have an elementary understanding of grammar, present and past tense construction, and syntax. This course is designed for students who have never studied French; those with previous high school study should take the language placement test before enrolling. Lab fees in French I are used to provide opportunities to build community through experiential learning, such as sampling authentic French foods, viewing films, etc.

No previous study of French in high school or college, or appropriate score on foreign language placement exam.
Lab fee: $20.
