PowerSpeaK High School French 1

PowerSpeak

French I

Prerequisites: No experience necessary

Course Length: Each semester course is 90 lessons. Each lesson is about 45-60 minutes.

Notes: Students who have already completed Middle School French 2 should enroll in French II rather than in French I.

Course Description: Students begin their introduction to French with fundamental building blocks in four key areas of world-language study: listening comprehension, speaking, reading, and writing. Students are initially trained to recognize key sounds and basic vocabulary, not only in written form but also through ear training that leads quickly to oral production. An ongoing adventure story introduces vocabulary and grammar topics, prompting students to use skills from the four language-learning areas. Students learn fundamental grammar as embedded in authentic spoken language. Engaging graphics, video, and games keep students interested, making learning languages exciting. An integrated, game-based reward system keeps learners motivated and eager to progress.
