The objective of this course is mastery of rudimentary language skills. With the use of simple structures and vocabulary, learners describe personal attributes, formulate simple questions and responses and conjugate in the present tense. Emphasis is given to speech as well as written forms. Students use technology for oral communication practice and evaluation. Short texts bring to light family life and French culture, relating to customs, activities and celebrations in Canada and around the world.
A headset or microphone and speakers is required for the oral parts of course. Students will submit recordings using software such as Jing software, You tube or Windows Media Player.
