In this introductory language seminar, lay the groundwork for a solid understanding of French grammar, pronunciation, and vocabulary. Through classroom instruction and real-life practice with native speakers, learn how to communicate effectively in everyday situations. Daily interactive language lessons provide opportunity for individualized instruction, while visits with students, shopkeepers, and musicians offer immersive experiences and real-world practice. Students may research an independent topic of their choice relating to French life or language, which they will present during the last week of the program. One year of French study is required.
