This year-long sequence of courses in French emphasizes mastery of basic skills through a solid study of grammatical structures and focus on interactive oral activities.  Classes use immersion style learning and students are surrounded by authentic French from the start.  Student work encompasses all four language skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing.  They will develop accurate pronunciation, build a useful vocabulary, work regularly in small groups and learn conversational skills.  Classes are lively and fast-paced with a wide variety of creative, fun activities including music, poetry, videos, role-play, and web sites.  Spring quarter themes focus on development of reading skills through tales, legends and viewing Francophone films from the Francophone world alongside grammatical study.  Through aloud reading and discussions in French, students will acquire vocabulary proficiency, accurate pronunciation, fluidity, and dialogues.  Throughout the year, students use the Language Laboratory to accelerate their skills.
