This three-hour-per-week course introduces students to the French language, and is designed to develop both linguistic and sociolinguistic competence in both spoken and written French. Because the focus is on task-centered communication, the class is conducted entirely in the target language. Course objectives for Elementary French 0001 are: a) to speak French well enough to describe, narrate and ask simple questions in the present about a variety of everyday topics such as family, work, eating and traveling; b) to understand French well enough to grasp main ideas in short conversations about everyday topics; c) to understand simple written French well enough to grasp main ideas; d) to write sentences and short paragraphs on everyday topics; f) to develop an awareness of French-speaking cultures; f) to understand, at a very basic level, how French functions as a language. This course is for students with little or no previous exposure to the language and its cultures.
