* Paperless - completely digital on Google Classroom or use the JPG's and PDF's to email to students or print on paper!
* This curriculum is more skill based and whole language based than focusing on particular grammar points. Grammar, vocabulary, and culture are woven into the activities in a more natural approach to language learning (similar to how we learn our native languages).
All of the major skills are covered: listening, speaking, reading, writing, and culture. Through the daily discussions, students are given helpful vocab and phrases so they can speak about a variety of topics (see the description). While they're recording videos or writing in a group chat, they're learning how to use things like: Je vais aller, Je voudrais + infinitive, etc.
The trifold flashcards review all the ER verbs through 3 sentence story strips, so they read a short story and put in the correct verb form. Next they read the same story, fill in the verbs and extra grammar through context such as articles, adjective agreement, prepositions, etc.
All of these activities include a wide variety of new vocabulary, with reference sheets with the words in English so they can learn what they mean. Basically, this is a very natural approach to learning the basic language concepts that you'd learn in a book, but the way you would use them in daily life through reading, writing, listening, and speaking.
