In French 1, students begin to develop competence in four basic skill areas: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. While developing communicative competence in French, students gain and expand their knowledge of francophone countries and cultures. Emphasis is placed on learning the present tense, the near future and the past tense in French I through thematically designed units. Topics include home, school, family, holidays, and daily and leisure activities. Students develop the ability to: greet and respond to greetings; introduce and respond to introductions; engage in conversations on several themes; express likes and dislikes; make requests; obtain information; understand some ideas and familiar details; begin to provide information. By the end of French I, students will: communicate minimally by using short sentences, learned words and phrases, and simple questions and commands when speaking and writing; understand some ideas and familiar details presented in clear, uncomplicated speech when listening; understand short texts enhanced by visual clues when reading.
This engaging, year-long world language course encourages students to expand their global awareness and digital literacy as it explores the language and the culture of the French. Students will build their proficiency in this world language by reading and listening to content-rich passages, studying sentence construction, and learning grammatical rules. They will study the parts of speech and proper word choice and tense. The course units include text-based lessons, on and off-computer exercises, special projects, learning games, quizzes, and tests that appeal to today's digital generation and help teachers to evaluate progress and mastery of the materials. French I enriches the educational experience for homeschool Christian school students and sparks a passion for learning.
