to understand French and francophone culture, traditions and to become a cultured international citizen.
From Bilingual to Multilingual! The aim for learning French is not only multilingualism, but to understand French and francophone culture, traditions and to become a cultured international citizen. Learning useful French through real-life experience The use of French texts that are in accordance with the EU standard French curriculum are the first steps to learning French. During class, junior high school students set themselves in real-life situations and role-play what they imagine they would do in that situation and are able to practice the materials they have learned in an interactive way. While learning level- appropriate vocabulary and grammar, digital materials are used and reading and writing skills are refined. Cultural knowledge is heightened with the understanding of French and francophone culture.
