MS French I – 1 Semester


Length: 1 Semester


This French course for middle school students is filled with interactive

language activities with instruction that is equivalent to that found in

the first semester of high school French I. Students begin their

introduction to French by focusing on the four key areas of language

study: listening, speaking, reading and writing. The course represents

an ideal blend of language learning pedagogy and online learning.

Each unit consists of a new vocabulary theme and grammar concept,

reading and listening comprehension activities, speaking and writing

activities, multimedia cultural presentations and task-based activities

to reinforce vocabulary and grammar. There is a strong emphasis on providing context and conversational examples for the language

concepts presented in each unit. Students will be actively engaged in

their own language learning, become familiar with common

vocabulary terms and phrases, comprehend a wide range of

grammar patterns, participate in simple conversations and respond

appropriately to basic conversational prompts, analyze and compare

cultural practices, products, and perspectives of various French speaking countries and take frequent assessments where their

language progression can be monitored. The course is suitable for

other ages, depending on background and experience.
