French 1 is a high school credit elective course. Students will learn to communicate in French and study the Francophone culture. This course covers topics such as greetings, introductions, discussing likes and dislikes, telling time, etc. We strive for a language-rich enviroment, in which class is conducted almost entirely in French so that students will acquire language skills through consistent practice in reading, writing, listening, and speaking. In class, students will be able to learn and recognize the similarities and differences between French-speaking cultures and their own. Full year in order to complete high school credit.
