101-110 First Step
First Step en Français is an introductory course for young students in French. The ten video lessons were designed to motivate as a group of children learn French from their neighbor who has just moved from France. In keeping with guidelines for the teaching of foreign language, this new neighbor only speaks French to the children as he teaches them. Through the use of graphics, music, and fast-paced video segments in addition to the native speaker/children scenarios, words are presented in context. Emphasis is on the "spoken" word rather than the "written" word. Cultural components are added when appropriate.
