French 1 presents the basics of the French language as spoken in Europe. Students learn greetings, verb conjugations, basic survival vocabulary, pronunciation rules, grammatical structures, and cultural highlights. They develop basic reading and conversational abilities, learning to understand and practically apply the facts rather than simply memorizing them. The instructor presents material primarily in English, using songs, Bible verses, readings on culture, and video supplements. Mrs. Suzanne Anderson teaches this course.
