This introductory French course provides a fun, 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 French-speaking cultures. Although the course focuses principally on vocabulary acquisition, basic grammar principles are intuitively grasped through the story, 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; get comfortable with the sounds and rhythms of French; learn simple French phrases; begin to read, write, speak and listen for meaning in French; and recognize distinctive practices and products of French-speaking cultures.

Special Notes:

A stable Internet connection is needed for this class since all work is done online. A minimum connection speed of 5Mbps is required.


Have you ever wanted to read and write in a secret code? It’s fun to be able to communicate with people in a different way. Learning a new language is just as fun! In this Elementary French course, you will be able to read and say the basic French words for greetings, colors, family members, and animals. You’ll also read some familiar stories and fables. You’ll be able to communicate simple messages to other friends in the course, or even with French people that you meet at home or around the world.
