Pre-requisites: Must have completed French 1
This course aims at introducing students to the basics of the French language. Taking a communication-based and task-based approach to teaching French, the course will cover the four basic language skills of reading, listening, speaking and writing. There will be greater focus on the first three of these skills as the objective is for students to be able to identify French when they see it or hear it and to be able to make themselves understood even if they are unable to form long sentences. It is anticipated that by the end of the course, the students will have a foundation of grammar and vocabulary to build upon in the subsequent courses.
