Introducing
FRENCH FOR BEGINNERS

The course serves to combat the language inadequacy arising from the introduction of the basic school programme which reduced coverage of the secondary school syllabus from five years to three years of High School in which pupils were expected to cover the same five year content. This is because French was mainly taught in High schools which has a three-year programme.

French for Beginners

Course Details

Background

Given that the world has become a global village, the knowledge of a second foreign language is a necessity for nearly every person under the sun. In Zambia, for instance, the landlocked status of the country makes it urgent for us to learn either Portuguese or French as we interact with our non-English speaking neighbours in Mozambique and in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Specifically, those with the knowledge of French are able to manoeuvre freely as they carry out their business in the neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo.

It is for this and many other reasons that the School of Education at Mulungushi University has designed a course in French to enable people without any knowledge in French to enrol and learn the language.

Another factor that has necessitated the introduction of this course is the popular demand and pressure to study French by unqualified candidates who would want to become teachers of French.

Rationale

The course serves to combat the language inadequacy arising from the introduction of the basic school programme which reduced coverage of the secondary school syllabus from five years to three years of High School in which pupils were expected to cover the same five year content. This is because French was mainly taught in High schools which has a three-year programme.

Aim

  1. The course is designed to impart some knowledge of French to applicants who have no knowledge or have some scanty and basic knowledge of French that falls short of the GCE level.
  2. The course aims to bring such candidates to a level close to School Certificate French.

Objectives

By the end of the course, students should be able to:

  1. Sustain a simple conversation in class
  2. Listen to and read simple dialogues, texts and short stories
  3. Write simple sentences and short texts in French.

Advantages of learning French

  1. French is very easy to learn for English speakers, since a good part of English vocabulary is derived from French.
  2. The ability to speak French can open doors to the international job market, international organisations and Non-Governmental Organisations. Do not limit yourself to the local job market but the outside world may require
  3. Do not be hindered from enrolling into French Universities because you cannot speak the French Language. Give yourself an opportunity to experience a different way of life.
  4. Now that you know your culture very well, you should endeavour to learn other people’s cultures. If you learn the French language, you will automatically learn the French culture as well and appreciate the way of life of the French people and that of the Francophone.
  5. You can ‘visit’ French speaking countries without actually travelling there, by way of learning the French language.
  6. French is a language of fun, a language of fashion and a language of romance. French is referred to as a sweet and melodious language. It is renowned for theatre, literature, art and music.
  7. French is a gateway to learning other foreign languages.
  8. Do not miss events in the French media because of lack of knowledge of French. With knowledge of this international language, you will be able to follow world events on France’s great television and radio channels. Your internet browsing, too, will be extended to websites designed in French.
  9. If you are on an international trip, your travel is a lot easier when you know more than one international language, especially if French is one of them.
