Discovering French Language and Culture

If you have never studied French, then take this course to develop basic listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills in the language. Learn through a variety of paired, small-group, and whole-class activities that rely on student interaction and participation. Gain the French language skills to understand conversations about basic topics, share information, and engage in brief exchanges using natural phrases and sentences. This course, which is taught almost entirely in French, can stand alone or can be like an hors d’oeuvre (which you’ll learn how to order!), leaving you hungry for more. Classroom discussion and cultural outings take the language off the page in this dynamic, interactive course.
