COURSE DESCRIPTION

French I
Grade 9-12

French I introduces students to effective strategies for beginning French language learning and to various aspects of French-speaking culture. This course encourages interpersonal and interpretive communication through speaking, writing, reading and listening activities. Students who complete French I successfully can describe in French using memorized lists and short sentences in the present tense. Additionally, students will examine the products (e.g., tools, books, music, laws, conventions, institutions); practices (patterns of social interactions within a culture); and perspectives (values, attitudes, and assumptions) of French-speaking culture.
