French 1
Bienvenue à la classe de français un!  I am thrilled to be helping you as you begin your journey with the French language.  French is a beautiful and vibrant language, spoken by millions of people all over the world.  French can be your passport to many exciting careers and opportunities.  Maintenant, vous faites partie du francophonie - you are a citizen of the French-speaking world.  

This year, we will be focusing on the present tense.  You will learn how to introduce yourself and ask about other people, how to talk about your hobbies and school activities, how to describe people, and more.  You will learn five irregular verbs and the three kinds of regular verbs.  You will be assessed regularly on your listening, reading, writing, and speaking abilities, as well as your knowledge of French and Francophone culture.  

Weekly vocabulary lists are here.  We have a vocabulary quiz every two weeks.  This vocabulary is supplemental to what we do for each unit, although it sometimes overlaps.
