Welcome to Introduction to French! 
This is a semester long class for beginners.  Most 6th graders take this class.  Don’t be intimidated by learning another language; we are going to have a lot of fun over the next semester.  By the end of the class, you will have a good, basic foundation of the language.  It will help you if you choose to take the high school-level French I class in 7th grade.
