FRE 114 Accelerated Beginning French
Congratulations to the students of FRE 114, Accelerated Beginning French. These students have finished an entire beginning year curriculum in just one semester. Most have had two years of high school French, but some are experienced language learners in Spanish who were brave enough to try picking up a new language using their language learning skills from Spanish. Thankfully, they have had the advantage of working with Marion, our French assistant, who does review work, cultural topics and readings with all 114 students. Our 114 students generally go on to the intermediate level with a better foundation and greater sense of confidence about their French studies after this course. While we move quickly at the beginning, those students who have truly applied themselves and have worked hard feel a great sense of accomplishment when they catch up to the second semester beginning students!
