Fundamentals of French composition, comprehension, pronunciation, speaking, reading, and writing in a cultural context. Classes are conducted in French and students engage in active use of the language. No prior knowledge expected. Cannot be taken for credit after FREN 1200.
Open to Degree and PACE students
FREN 1100 is the first course in a two-semester sequence of beginning French. It is designed for the student with little or no prior knowledge of the language. Emphasis is on acquisition of speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills that will allow the student to communicate at a basic level. All classes will be taught in French. The University of Vermont adheres to the Department of Education’s expectation that for every hour in a classroom, a student is expected to complete approximately 2 hours of homework. Thus, you should expect to be engaged in the material at least 8 hours a week outside of the classroom. Important: Within three months prior to enrolling in your first language class at UVM, you need to take the online placement test (even if you haven't studied the language) and enroll in the course level recommended. Note that if you enroll in a class without taking the test, or enroll in a class below your recommended level, the system will disenroll you from the course (you will receive an email notification if this occurs). Find the placement test at go.uvm.edu/flp
