The Grade 5 French program follows a spiral/sequential curriculum which leads to the development of communicative proficiency in French. The program is designed for students with prior experience in the target language or with little or no prior experience. The program lays a foundation for further language study in upcoming grades.  Reading and writing are incorporated as an extension of oral communication. Students communicate through basic words and short phrases within a context and begin to combine words and phrases to exchange information about everyday topics.  Linguistic and cultural contents follow the recommendations of the European Common Framework of Reference Level A1.   

We meet four times per week, 45 minutes each class.
