The Introduction to French – The Language Class for Beginners is meant for True Beginners. Students who have had more than two semesters at the beginning level should not take this class as we will begin at the most rudimentary level.
Here are the details:
·       Class will be on Tuesday nights from 5:30PM-6:30PM
·       The Beginning class will use the Living Language French: Beginner textbook.  The syllabus will be distributed prior to the first class.
.       If you participated in the Alliance Francaise Beginners or Intermediate class for the Fall 2020 or Spring 2021 semester and you KEPT the books you purchased for that semester you should already have the necessary textbook for this class.
To register for the Beginning French Class ALL students must be members of the Alliance Francaise de Newport. Membership costs as little as $45 (less for full-time students).
The cost of the Beginning classes is $100 for the semester

Classes will be held on Tuesday evenings from 5:30-6:30pm.

It is anticipated that these classes will be Google Classroom based.  Google Classroom is an online app/website that offers students the best of the zoom meeting capability but also functionality that offers a more complete online classroom experience.
