An introduction to French for students with little or no previous knowledge of the language. The paper takes an integrated approach to the skills of language acquisition, focusing on practical survival skills.
Do you want to learn another language and be able to travel with confidence in more than 30 countries or add a new skill to your degree? This intensive course engages students in learning the basic vocabulary and structures of French. The teaching methodology is student-centred, with the lecturer acting as facilitator, and the ultimate goal of this paper is to make the students independent users of French.
