Au Boulot! First-Year French
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

Au boulot! is a two-year college French program consisting of: a textbook, workbook and 21 accompanying audio exercises; as well as a reference grammar, to be used the entire two years. We also insist that our students obtain a full-sized dictionary, and we recommend the HARPER-COLLINS-ROBERT bilingual New Standard Edition. (Instructors will note in reviewing the materials that we provide vocabulary lists at the ends of chapters, with translations, but no glossary. We have become convinced after years of experience that glossaries are counter-productive. It is vital that students learn to use dictionaries, and the sooner the better.)

Chapeau! First-Year French
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

Chapeau! is a first-year college text. Although it may appear, at first glance, to move very fast and introduce a large amount of material early, the vocabulary and grammatical structures that we expect students to control actively by the end of the year are limited in accord with our notion of a reasonable application of the ACTFL proficiency guidelines. As a result, while some instructors may be surprised at such things as the absence of the possessive pronoun, no insistence on the use of optional subjunctives, and no active treatment of the relative dont, others may be disturbed by what we still include in a first-year text. What we do expect students to acquire (which is quantitatively less than what we present in the text for them to know about), we believe they will acquire well, providing a sound basis for further study (formal or informal) and permitting us to say to them, both during and at the end of the course, "Chapeau!"

Enhancing oral skills
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file.

As taught in Autumn Semester 2010.

Enhancing Oral Skills (EOS) is a project aimed to provide French beginners with listening activities available on the University of Nottingham (Ningbo campus) platform WebCT (Virtual Self-Access Centre) for their self-study at the very first stage of their learning.

The activities have been created taking into account the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) developed by the Council of Europe and The UK National Centre for Languages.

Each recording focuses in particular on CEFR/A1 descriptors, and aims at developing learner’s understanding of relevant topics and the related needed vocabulary and some specific grammar points. Recordings are slow and activities are short in order to allow students to concentrate on detailed vocabulary and/or grammar point.

Suitable for study at undergraduate level 1.

The FLLITE website contains a collection of lessons in second language literacy for various languages.

The website is the focal point of the FLLITE Project, which takes the creative moments found in everyday language use as the basis for lessons in second language literacy. By emphasizing language play as central to communication, FLLITE lessons aim to develop language awareness as well as communicative abilities through the integration of speaking, reading, listening, and writing tasks.

The goal of the FLLITE Project is the publication of classroom-tested lessons based on authentic texts in different languages, for example, blogs, Internet memes, YouTube videos, slam poetry, and so forth.

All FLLITE lessons carry an open license that allows you the teacher to…

…access, adapt, and re-use any lesson; and
…contribute a lesson for editorial feedback and publication.
