Objectives

You will learn to:

  • understand and use common expressions and basic phrases found in day-to-day use in France (food, directions..)
  • introduce yourself, ask and answer questions about personal details such as where you live, friends and family, and your interests and hobbies
  • interact at a basic level, provided the other person speaks slowly and is ready to help a little (“what time is it?” or “what you are going to do?)

The course materials include the textbook Foundations French 1 by Dounia Bissar, readings, pre-recorded video lectures, and research assignments.

Aims

MY APPROACH

I offer a friendly and stimulating environment to help you gain confidence in French. The emphasis is on communication, mainly through active student participation. I use remote Blended Learning which means a mix of learning. There will be traditional face to face teaching, and flipped classroom method where you will be introduced to content at home and practise working through it in our online class supported by me and/or your peers. For this you will have to be ready to provide 2 hours of work prior to each class.

Format

Class work (online) and individual study

Duration

Nine sessions of two hours each taught over a period of three weeks

Frequency

Yearly
