Welcome to French I and Culture

In this course you will undertake the study of a language that is the vehicle of communication of one of the world’s great cultures. You will learn to communicate in basic French and to read simple French texts. Even if French is not your major or even your minor, this course can be of great benefit to you. You may use it in your business, in your personal life, or as a research tool in graduate school. Studying French entails not only knowledge of the language, but also an awareness of the history, culture and literature of France and the francophone world.
