Introductory French 1 (FRNC1601)

This unit is designed primarily for students with no experience in French. It is based both on communicative methodology and a functional approach to language. Its main objective is to teach the learner how to communicate and use grammar appropriately in a range of situations, while learning about French culture.

In addition, online resources and grammar activities will complement face-to-face teaching.
