In grade 6, students are introduced to the four general linguistic skills: the ability to use correct French pronunciation and intonation patterns, the ability to converse on a novice level in French, the ability to read basic French, and the ability to understand basic phrases and commands given in French. This is accomplished through the material and activities as presented in the beginning chapters of Bien Dit.
In grades 7 and 8, students will continue the study of French through their continued use of the textbook series, Bien Dit. Basic grammatical concepts and conversational units are presented, in addition to building upon those skills introduced in grade 6. Aspects of French culture are also introduced.
