“French 1” is for beginners who have little or no French language skills. We will learn words, expressions and phrases useful to those who would like to visit France and not have to depend on a tour guide all the time. Many French people in tourist areas speak English, so why study French? To demonstrate appreciation for their culture and put a smile on their faces. You do not need a lot of French to get along famously with the French. We will concentrate on key phrases, vocabulary and cultural hints to help you speak courteously and respectfully when shopping, traveling and buying too much delicious food. 

Textbook (optional): “Living Language French, Essential Edition:” Beginner course, including course book, 3 audio CDs and free online learning lab. (ISBN-13: 978-0-307-47842-9)
