Class Overview:
Bienvenue to Level 1 French! This year we will explore
different cultures, vocabulary, grammar, literature, and media
in the francophone world. Some topics include school, family,
food, sports, and travel. We will learn verbs in the present
tense and past tense, as well as many other French language
structures. Students will be expected to complete homework
on an almost nightly basis, as well as participate in discussion,
give oral presentations, and create meaningful projects. We
will also explore music, film, and other interesting cultural
aspects of French culture from all over the world. Students
will be evaluated by the “5 C’s” standards of foreign language
learning, which will build students’ speaking, listening,
reading, and writing skills.
The “5 C’s”
• Communication – communicate in languages
other than English
• Cultures – gain knowledge and understanding of
other cultures
• Connections – connect with other disciplines and
acquire information
• Comparisons – develop insight into the nature of
language and culture
• Communities – participate in multilingual
communities at home and around the world

Classroom Expectations:
As a general rule, you should always come to class ontime and prepared and respect your materials, peers and
teacher. I encourage flexibility and a positive attitude –
we are all going to make mistakes and occasionally sound
funny as we’re learning a new language – it’s normal!
Let’s encourage each other! Participation and active
engagement in activities is also essential for success.
Note: Absolutely NO ONLINE TRANSLATORS are
permitted for use on any and all assignments.

Tryo – “Salut Ô”
• French language 'unplugged' reggae acoustic band from
Brittany, popular in Europe and in Quebec, with three French
guitarists, a percussionist, and a producer: Guizmo,
Christophe Mali, Manu Eveno, Daniel "Danielito" Bravo and
Bibou.
• Tryo are popular in France partly due to their politically
charged lyrics, whilst also showing a fun side with a range of
humorous songs, especially in live performances.
• They take a left wing stance, criticizing various French
politicians such as Charles Pascqua (named in corruption
scandals concerning suburban low cost housing or HLM) and
Jean-Marie La Pen and world leaders (George W. Bush, for
example) in their music.

Listen to the conversation between two young people.
Tu t’appelles comment?
Moi, je m’appelle Nicolas. Et toi?

Salut, Nicolas.
Salut, Marie.
When you want to find out the name of a person who is about the same age
as you, you can ask Tu t’appelles comment? However, you would not use
this expression with an older person. You will learn the more formal forms
at a later time.
Activité 2 – Listen, repeat, and answer
Now repeat after the speaker and answer the question at the
end.
Tu t’appelles comment?
Moi, je m’appelle Nicolas. Et toi?
