French: Beginner

This intensive non-credit course is for beginners who want to learn French in a short period. The emphasis will be on learning French for everyday and academic communication. Students will work on grammar exercises. Then practice them through listening, speaking, reading and writing activities. Many activities are done in groups to help each student feel at ease practising his/her new language skills. This course also includes cultural activities. These outings allow students to use what they learn in class with locals. So, some topics cover greetings and introductions, asking for directions, telling time, useful phrases for shopping, eating out, and making appointments.
In addition to language skills, students learn simple academic skills. Giving presentations and writing short essays are two such skills.
