Defense Language Institute French  - Image This French language program owes a great deal to the Commander, Fort Devens, and to those members of the 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne), who have given the Nonresident Instruction Division, DLIFLC the benefit of their great experience as subject matter experts in the development of the field test edition of this Special Forces French Functional Program. Special thanks are also extended to the instructors of the DLIFLC French Department for their valuable collaboration in translating and correcting dialogues, narratives, and exercises.

This program is an original effort designed to provide a functional French language ability in a guerrilla warfare environment. Upon completion, the student should be able to:

-Communicate with French speakers in the basic situations presented in the course.
-Present basic instruction, in French, in the rudiments of his MOS.

The program is designed to be used with an instructor who is trained in the methodology of the Defense Language Institute, Foreign Language Center (DLIFLC).

The comments of students and teachers using this unedited field test edition will serve as a guide for the next edition. The course consists of 48 lessons with dialogues and situations based on a sample guerrilla warfare scenario. Additional materials address the vocabulary and terminology peculiar to each of the Special Forces Operational Specialties (05BS, 118S, 11CS 128S, 91BS) and common tasks. The situation dialogues are accompanied by audios.

Each lesson includes a dialogue, a vocabulary list, structural notes, drills, a narrative, exercises, and homework. At the end of each volume there is an answer key for each lesson's narration and homework.

The course is designed to be completed in a structured program lasting approximately 12 weeks, eight hours a day, five days a week. A minimum of two hours of homework a day will be required. A new lesson should not be attempted until the students have assimilated the preceding lessons.

French is a Romance language, belonging to the Indo-European family. It descended from the spoken Latin language of the Roman Empire, as did languages such as Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Romanian, Catalan and others. Its closest relatives are the other langues d'o?llanguages historically spoken in northern France and in southern Belgium, which French (Francien) has largely supplanted. French was also influenced by native Celtic languages of Northern Roman Gaul like Gallia Belgica and by the (Germanic) Frankish language of the post-Roman Frankish invaders. Today, owing to France's past overseas expansion, there are numerous French-based creole languages, most notably Haitian Creole. A French-speaking person or nation may be referred to as Francophone.French is an official language in 29 countries, most of which form la francophonie (in French), the community of French-speaking countries. It is an official language of all United Nations agencies and a large number of international organizations. According to the European Union, 129 million, or twenty-six percent of the Union's total population, can speak French, of whom 72 million are native speakers (65 million in France, 4.5 million in Belgium and an additional 2.5 million in Switzerland, which is not part of the EU) and 69 million are second-language or foreign language speakers, thus making French the third language in the European Union that people state they are most able to speak, after English and German. Twenty percent of non-Francophone Europeans know how to speak French, totaling roughly 145.6 million people in Europe alone. As a result of extensive colonial ambitions of France and Belgium (at that time governed by a French-speaking elite), between the 17th and 20th centuries, French was introduced to colonies in the Americas, Africa, Polynesia, the Levant, Southeast Asia, and the Caribbean.?French is an official language in 29 countries, most of which form la francophonie (in French), the community of French-speaking countries.
