Introduction to French 1A HEF101

Hobart

Introduction

This is an introductory unit for students with little or no prior knowledge of French. The unit places its main stress on the development of a sound basic knowledge of the structure of the language and on practice in the four basic language skills bringing students to a degree of linguistic competence equivalent to level A1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) https://www.coe.int/en/web/common-european-framework-reference-languages. Work with authentic material and audio-visual material supports this integrated approach to language learning.
