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.
