The course focuses on: vocabulary acquisition and basic grammar principles. These are intuitively grasped through stories games, activities, songs and assessments.
The goal of Middlebury Interactive Languages is for the student to:
- Engage in language learning
- become comfortable with the sounds and rhythms of French
- learn simple French phrases
- Begin to read, write, speak and listen for meaning in French
- To recognize distinctive practices and customs of the French-speaking cultures.
Each unit is based on a story (Unit 1 was Little Red Riding Hood), a myth or legend from various French-speaking cultures.
These are reinforced as students perform simple tasks in connection with each unit's theme. For example in Unit 1: Greetings each French greeting is connected with a character in the story. In the exercises Practice: Greetings 1 the student is given the five characters and greetings and has to match them up with one another.

I'm enjoying watching Nathaniel's confidence grow as he works his way through Middlebury. I just wish I could learn as fast as he does! I enjoy the simplicity of the overall program and how it automatically keeps track of his grade and progress for me.
