Face-to-face instruction and remote learning plans
for the fall semester of 2021-2022
Collège 1ère année class
Although we encourage in-person learning for students in this class, we will offer a hybrid format when needed, based on students' needs and requests as well as the public health situation.
Any remote learning request will need to be addressed to the director ([email protected]
"Collège 1ère année" course will focus on the continued development of cultural and language skills in the target language through speaking, listening, writing, and reading activities. Specifically students will complete a monthly project on French speaking countries, the history of France, the history of French and US relations, and French culture and customs. Some examples of projects are American cities with French history, French cuisine, youth in France, and the French education system.
Students cannot perform well on their assignments if they do not harbor the appropriate vocabulary, grammar, and writing skills that are an integral part of the curriculum of the traditional "classe de sixième". Every month we will dedicate two Saturdays to study vocabulary, grammar, conjugation, reading, and writing appropriate to specific monthly- projects and a French dictation to develop their mastery of the spelling, vocabulary and grammar introduced in France at the sixth grade level. Students will use a laptop, Ipad or tablet in class every Saturday.
This class is from 9:30am to 12:00pm.
