French in Action I|
|Required Sequence: FREN 101 & FREN102|
This multimedia course combines video, audio, and print to teach French language and culture as complementary facets of a single reality. It puts you in the presence of authentic, unsimplified French and trains you to use it in the dynamic context of actual communication. A complete, carefully sequenced course, it involves you actively in your own learning and emphasizes communicative proficiency--not the study of rules and regulations, but the development of skills, self-expression, and cultural insight. FREN101 is the first semester of the four-semester introductory and intermediate French language sequence.
Intercultural Literacy, Speaking
Students will compare cultural practices between their own and French and Francophone cultures, as well as develop their speaking skills in French at the novice level.
