Grade Breakdown Class participation and preparation: 20% Written work: 15% Final exam: 15% Chapter tests (6% each x 3): 18% Mid-term 12% Oral assessment 10% Oral presentation: 10% Introduction to FREN 1001 through 2002 The first four courses in French (or the first three courses for those who start with FREN 1110) form a unified program designed to help you develop the ability to speak, read, write, and understand the language. You will also learn about how various people who speak French conduct their lives. The majority of class time will be spent working on speaking French; you will develop the other skills primarily through assignments. To achieve these goals, your teacher will speak only French in class. Since talking about grammar is not as beneficial as using the grammar, you should not expect your teacher to devote class time to explanations of grammatical concepts. S/he will conduct exercises requiring you to use the new structures, but afterward will be happy to answer any remaining questions. Consult your syllabus and your teacher to determine whether you are in the right course. Course Goals At the end of this class, you should be able to: have elementary conversations about familiar topics, describe yourself, your family and friends, and your routine activities in the past, present and future ask elementary questions and formulate somewhat simple opinions understand elementary stories and conversations, as well as audio and reading materials write elementary descriptions and tell about events in the past, present and future.
