“French 1” is for beginners who have little or no French language skills. Many French people in tourist areas speak English, so why study French? Because demonstrating appreciation for their culture and a minimum of acquaintance with their language will put smiles on their faces and make your trip to a French-speaking country even more pleasurable. The course will emphasize good pronunciation and introduce key vocabulary and common expressions as well as basic grammar to help you to speak respectfully while enjoying exposure to and participation in French culture. Teaching with Zoom for language study brings the sounds and sights of the new language and culture directly into your own environment and allows for easy participation in class exercises.  For students who have previously attended the class, we will be starting with a brief review over the first weeks of units covered in spring 2023, and will then move forward to new material.  The coursework will be appropriate for both beginners and students who have attended the class previously.
