Fixed-Pace Course





In this course, students begin discovering the French language and its rich culture. This course will give them the tools they need to begin communicating and using the new vocabulary and grammar structures. A new theme is presented every three weeks and within the basis of the theme, students work on all aspects of communication: interpretive, interpersonal, and presentational. Featured themes include: introducing oneself, family, house, school, and food.

Completion of this course requires regular access to a laptop or desktop computer with working microphone and webcam, as well as a reliable internet connection.

This Fixed-Paced course incorporates a blend of synchronous and asynchronous elements. Students and teacher meet live via zoom on a regular weekly schedule. In addition, students complete coursework including guided readings, interactive videos, text and video-based discussion threads, problem sets, individual and collaborative projects, and so on. While these activities are time-flexible, teachers sequence them with weekly deadlines to help students keep on track and encourage and support the development of productive time management skills.
