COURSE CONTENTS

Chapter 5 - Lesson 1 (Introduction)

This lesson covers page 267 and presents the three key learning objectives of the chapter. It also identifies certain things you need to know by the end of the chapter in order to achieve each of the learning objectives.

Chapter 5 - Lesson 2 (Vocabulary)

This lesson covers pages 286 to 288. Part of the communication objective is to introduce you to vocabularies and expressions. The more of them you know how to use, the better you get in spoken French. Watch, listen and practice how to say those words and expressions.

Chapter 5 - Lesson 3 (Les chambres dans ma maison)

In this lesson, you will learn the names of the various rooms and compartments of a typical home. You will learn the names of certain objects that may be found in each room.

Chapter 5 - Lesson 4 (Faire Expressions)

In this lesson, you will learn a bunch of expressions based on the verbe "faire". They are called "faire expressions". You will revise the conjugation of the verb "faire" in the present tense. You will see how to combine "faire", conjugated in the present, with the "faire expressions" to begin to make simple sentences to tell who does what domestic chores in your home.

Chapter 5 - Lesson 5 (Qui fait le menage chez vous?)

In the previous lessons, we have concentrated on acquiring vocabularies to give you the ability to identify various household chores and responsibilities. In this lesson, we will begin to tie everything together. You will revise the conjugation of certain verbs (travailler, habiter, passer) in the present tense so that, using the verb as the centre of speech, you shall connect the vocabularies and begin to create your own simple sentences to tell who does what in your family.

Chapter 5 - Lesson 6 (Qu'est-ce qu'il y a chez vous?)

In the previous lesson, we started connecting the vocabularies to our communication objective by making some simple sentences. In this lesson, using the model home and vocabularies on page 268, I introduce you to composition writing. At this point, you are moving from just writing single sentences to creating paragraphs where you identify the different rooms in your house and various objects that can be found in each room.

Chapter 5 Lesson 7 (General Intro/Revision of Verb Groups)

In this lesson, we identify the verb as key to connecting all the vocabularies and expressions we have acquired in the previous lessons. We go through a quick overview of French verb groups and identify the key grammatical concepts that we are going to be focusing in during this week. This introduces us into the grammatical learning objectives of the chapter.

Chapter 5 - Lesson 8 (Regular -RE Verbs)

In this lesson, we re-emphasize the three major verb groups (-er, -ir and -re verbs) in French. We identify the two parts of an infinitive (stem + terminaison) and focus on how to conjugate regular -re verbs in the present tense. You are introduced to other online tools that you can use to practice and enhance your knowledge of verb conjugation.

ANIMATED IGBO CARTOONS PROJECT

Igbo, a language of over thirty million native speakers living predominantly in South-Eastern Nigeria, and which, due to immigration, now has a significant native-speaker representation in North America, is categorized as an endangered language due to sociolinguistic factors resulting in decreasing native-speaker competence. In North America and everywhere else where Igbo is spoken, modern professional families often have neither time nor the knowledge of the oral traditions to transfer to their children. We are stepping in to provide an avenue for the Igbo child/family to learn language, values, customs, ethics, etc., through media contents such as video lessons, cartoons and folktales.

This collaborative and interdisciplinary project focuses on preserving the Igbo language, which, according to the UNESCO and endangered language scholars, will be extinct in 50 years. This website is designed to be a Learning Management System, and an online language centre where adults can access video lessons and animations; young learners, cartoons and animated videos; and parents, cartoons and language tools to teach Igbo to their children.
