French I

This class, taught primarily in French, uses Bon Voyage I and the accompanying Writing Activities Workbook. A variety of activities and assignments provide practice in all four language skills—speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Digitized audio segments help students develop listening comprehension skills, vocabulary, and correct pronunciation.

Grammar is studied on a regular basis, and is taught using a wide variety of activities, such as dialogues, skits, cartoons, comic books, short film excerpts, songs, paintings, games, Internet exercises, and multimedia lessons. This course also introduces students to the many aspects of French and francophone culture.
