Elementary School French

Elementary School French I

A Premium World Language Course
1 year
Available to Grades 3-5

This introductory French course provides an interactive experience for a student’s first exposure to the French language. The content for each unit is based on an authentic story, myth, or legend from various Frenchspeaking cultures. Although the course focuses on vocabulary acquisition, basic grammar principles are intuitively grasped through stories, games, activities, songs, and assessments. In addition, students learn to perform simple tasks in connection with each unit’s theme. Students engage in language learning in a rewarding, low-stress environment, and they become comfortable with the sounds and rhythms of French. They learn simple French phrases; begin to read, write, speak, and listen for meaning in French; and recognize distinctive practices and customs of French-speaking cultures.

Elementary School French II

A Premium World Language Course
1 year
Available to Grades 3-5
Prerequisite: Elementary School French I

Students continue on the path to language proficiency during their second year of Elementary French 2. Each week's content is based on an immersive story of adventure, which runs throughout the course, with weekly episodes beginning in English. Although the course focuses primarily on vocabulary acquisition, basic grammar principles are intuitively grasped through stories, games, activities, and assessments. Approximately every fourth week, students listen to and learn a simple French folk song, lullaby, or traditional song. Culture lessons are presented through multi-media CultureGrams™— lessons covering cultural aspects of major French-speaking areas in Europe and across the globe. Through the course, students expand their listening and reading comprehension with more than 600 vocabulary words and grow in their ability to read, write, speak, and listen for meaning in basic French.
