Introduction

French 6 is an introductory level course providing students with information, skills, and concepts designed to create a strong foundation for future language learning. In addition to gaining a clear understanding of the French language, students also develop intercultural understanding by learning about Francophone culture in Canada and around the world. The French program at IPS uses elements of the AIM program, which contextualizes the language through the use of plays, music, stories, and games.
