Foundations of French I the first half ofa one-year sequence, is designed for students with no prior knowledge ofthe language. Students will develop the language skills needed to communicate at a basic level with native speakers and learn the requisite cultural sensitivity to interact and relate to French-speaking communities around the world. The development of listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills in French through the exploration of familiar topics such as family and friends, professions, daily activities, college life, food and restaurants, sports and hobbies, and shopping will be an important part ofthe course. The emphasis throughout the semester will be on the active use ofthe target language in context. Just as significantly, through readings, video clips, class discussions, and online activities students will become aware of cross- cultural similarities and differences, thus enhancing their global competence. The course will also help them reflect on the nature of language in general and their own language in particular.
