This class for beginning French students will introduce basic vocabulary and conversational French. Our textbook "D'accord! 1" is part of Vista Higher Learning. Our language class combines the textbook and the TPRS method for learning vocabulary. TPRS stands for Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling. It is a multi-sensory methodology, meaning that it meets the needs of various learning styles. Gestures and acting meet the needs of kinesthetic learners; visual images (illustrations, props, puppets, live actors, etc) satisfy the needs of visual learners; the tremendous amount of listening and reading activities appeal to visual and auditory learners. Through the course, students will develop a real "ear for the language," learning to listen and respond to what sounds right. The students will also be introduced to various elements of French and francophone cultures throughout the world.
