The MS French program is divided into three different levels: Basic for students in Grade 6; Beginner for students in Grade 7; and Advanced Beginner Level for students in Grade 8.
At the Basic Level, students start learning about how to pronounce French letters, read basic words, learn how to greet someone, and also learn basic vocabulary words such as daily command words, names of days, months, seasons, numbers, colors, and family members.
For the Beginner Level, students begin to learn basic grammar such as pronouns, verb forms, verb conjugations in the present tense, types of sentences: statements, commands and questions, and negative forms.
In the Advanced Beginner Level, students learn broader grammar with more vocabulary and expressions in everyday conversation.
Of course, there are several assignments and projects for Middle School students. In addition to grammar and vocabulary knowledge, students also learn French culture through French foods, songs and habits in their daily lives.
