French A1

(Common European Framework of Reference Equivalent A1)

Grades: 9, 10, 11 or 12

Subject Area/Course Credit: World Language, 1 credit

Prerequisite: None

French A1 is designed for students with no knowledge of the French language. Students familiarize themselves with the basics of French grammar and spelling and acquire a vocabulary of roughly 700 words. Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to confidently approach a number of everyday situations in French and write short, creative essays. The grammar taught in this course includes pronouns, adjectives, the present tense, the imperative form, the near future and past tenses (recent past and perfect). At the end of the course students are prepared to sit an external examination to receive the European Language Certificate, the TELC (The European Language Certificates), corresponding to their current level, if they so choose.
