Introduction to French is a class intended for students with little to no French background. During the class students will take part in the four main areas of language learning: speaking, writing, reading, and listening. As we progress in the class, students will be expected to use as much French as they can, to help improve their skills.
After completing the course, students are expected to reach the following goals:
- Introduce the students to the vocabulary, grammar, and structure of the target language
- Focus on cultural norms and processes, especially in regard to the appropriate use of the language
- To begin to build a base of French vocabulary through the use of reading, writing, listening, and comprehension skills in the target language

Students and their parents will receive brief feedback after each class regarding the student’s general participation in class. Students will also receive feedback on graded assignments via email. At the end of the course, the student will receive a final report card, which thoroughly speaks to their overall participation in the course, including major assignments.
