Course Description

French 1 presents the basics of the French language as spoken in Europe. Students learn greetings, verb conjugations, basic survival vocabulary, pronunciation rules, grammatical structures, and cultural highlights. They develop basic reading and conversational abilities, learning to understand and practically apply the facts rather than simply memorizing them. The instructor presents material primarily in English, using songs, Bible verses, readings on culture, and video supplements.

French 1 features the latest updates on French culture and advice on relating to French-speaking neighbors in Canada, Europe, and around the world. Students will develop an intermediate level of proficiency in French grammar and will learn practical language content, such as greetings and taking leave, asking and answering simple questions to meet survival needs, ordering food, traveling, and relating the gospel in a simple manner, all within the context of real-life situations. French translations of Bible verses introduce each chapter of the textbook.
