5 Syllabus cont. Class Overview: Bienvenue to Level 1 French! This year we will explore different cultures, vocabulary, grammar, literature, and media in the francophone world. Some topics include school, family, food, sports, and travel. We will learn verbs in the present tense and past tense, as well as many other French language structures. Classes will be conducted primarily in French - while this is challenging and requires a lot of patience and tenacity, immersion is one of the most rewarding and effective ways of learning language. Students will be expected to complete homework on an almost nightly basis, as well as participate in discussion, give oral presentations, and create meaningful projects. We will also explore music, film, and other interesting cultural aspects of French culture from all over the world. Students will be evaluated by the “5 C’s” standards of foreign language learning, which will build students’ speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills.
