It involves the students learning to communicate effectively in French in a variety of interactive everyday tasks while simultaneously paying increased attention to the quality of language in all four main language skills (speaking, listening, reading, writing). The students will benefit from the small class size, discussions on topics highly relevant to children and teens (volunteer work, games and apps, podcasts, movies, environment, health), and instruction with efficient constructive feedback provided by a French native speaker and highly-experienced FSL instructor. The students will participate in the course from the comfort of their home.
