The course is presented over four levels, so students can choose the level of proficiency they desire or decide when they no longer need assistance. This is a modern course, revised by Monique Cossard and the FSI staff. It follows a format of learning, practice and progress at your own pace, which is standard to these courses. For beginning students, the twenty-four units are designed for a six-month intensive training program of six hours of work per day, plus outside preparation. Each unit presents a situational topic introduced in a dialogue, and usually five grammar points. Each grammar point is preceded by grammar notes which generally are expressed in non-technical terms. Planned in four volumes, the French Basic Course was designed to help students reach a level of proficiency which will enable them to participate effectively in most formal and informal conversations.

Vocabulary awareness to enable the student to better identify the elements of the utterances learned as a whole and to regroup and review vocabulary. 4. Drills of six different kinds, each type designed for a specific purpose. a. Lexical drills to manipulate already acquired vocabulary and improve fluency. b. Learning drills to introduce new grammar points (with reference to the corresponding grammar notes). c. Practice drills to give the student an opportunity to illustrate in sentences the grammar point he just covered. d. Question drills to prepare the student for normal conversation. e. Answer drills to prepare the student for normal conversation. f. Review drills (Drills preceded by an (*) have been included for optional use with fast-moving students..) 5. Situations to improve comprehension and serve as a basis for questions and elementary conversation. 6.
