French Story Listening


with Elizabeth Porter

Calendar Apr 5, 2018 at 12:45 pm, runs for 8 weeks

Story listening is a method in which students learn language through listening to stories!  Students will listen to stories in French, learning vocabulary through pictures.  This method does not ask student to produce, but rather gives them the comprehensible input and immersion in the language to develop an ear for language, and feel confident because they can UNDERSTAND the language.  Students will listen to stories, draw pictures of vocabulary,  and then be asked at the end of the story to summarize either through pictures or an explanation of the story in English (or French if student is able) to show comprehension.  This is an excellent course for all students at all levels who want to spend time immersed in language, but the stories are simple and well known enough that even beginners will be able to understand.   This is also a very good course for students who have been in a previous immersion situation.  We'll hear a new story each week- stories such as "Les Trois Petits Cochons" (Three Little Pigs), "Petit Chaperon Rouge" (Little Red Riding Hood) and some famous French stories such as Les Fables de la Fontaine.  This course is excellent and effective on its own, and even better as a supplement to the "academic" French courses offered such as French 1 and French 2.  Students who are in middle school or high school will be offered 1/4 high school language credit for this course to count towards the two credits needed for college admissions.
