We will base our learning on interactive methods to develop skills in speaking, reading and writing French with the major emphasis on spoken French used to communicate. Some introduction to French culture will also be included. Classroom work will be in groups and with partners, and the instructor will incorporate audio-visual presentations. Progress of the participants will be based on the effort made both in and out of the class setting, and participants can expect an amount of homework that will be more than average for an OLLI course. Required text: French Now by Christopher Kendris Ph.D. and Theodore Kendris Ph.D., ISBN-13: 978-1438072791. Recommended: Use of the Duolingo French app.
