This course will bring together the grammar theory and skills previously acquired into a useful and practical framework which will form a foundation for further university-level study in French. Contact hours (in class and in the lab) will be spent applying theory and further developing the four language skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking through group tasks and activities.
A student successfully completing this course will be at the A2 (Waystage or Elementary) Level and will
- understand sentences and frequently used expressions related to areas of most immediate relevance (e.g. very basic personal and family information, shopping, local geography, employment).
- communicate in simple terms about routine tasks requiring a simple and direct exchange of information on familiar and routine matters.
- describe in simple terms aspects of his/her background, immediate environment and matters in areas of immediate need.
