AUFRE101 Beginners' French I Course Page

Description: AUFRE 101 and 102 are designed to develop ability in reading and writing French, with a strong emphasis on the development of comprehension and oral communication skills.

These two courses not only encourage the student to think critically about the principles of grammar as they relate to the French language, but also stimulate an in-depth understanding of the principles by which language functions in general. These two courses also lead the student through the steps of reflective learning as they consider and discuss language learning strategies.
