EAC offering French 101 online and in person this fall

By Lori Dugan

Thatcher, Ariz—Eastern Arizona College’s Languages Department is pleased to announce that it will now offer French 101 online as well as in-person this fall.

“When we had to switch to remote learning last semester due to the pandemic I got a very fast education on how to use zoom and other online learning,” says EAC French professor, Tonka Curtis. “Like many students, this jump into the unknown had to be taken with a leap of faith and after much research, revision, and the help of a great support system, I am so excited to bring French 101 to our students online.”

French 101 is designed for students at the beginning level who wish to speak, understand, read, and write in French. The course explores the cultural and linguistic characteristics of Francophone countries.

Transfer students will be interested to know that this course fulfills the Global-International-Historical awareness (GIH) requirement and meets the Diversity and Inclusion (DI) requirement.

“Students will learn the same material in both the online and in-person classes,” said Curtis. “But, this will give them more options in these changing times.”

The in-person version of French 101, FRE101, section #0700, will meet weekdays from 9-9:50 a.m., in the Academic Programs Building, Room #277.

Curtis has prepared an introductory video for students who are curious about how the class will work. To view the video visit: French 101.
