FREN222-18S2 (C) Semester Two 2018

French Language Acquisition : Intermediate B

15 points
16 Jul 2018 - 18 Nov 2018


This is the fourth course in a sequence of French language acquisition courses offered by the programme. Students without the formal prerequisite, but with some previous knowledge of French, should consult the Programme Director to determine which course is the most appropriate.

This course is one step above secondary school level. It is for students who have done five years of French at school or have passed FREN 123 or FREN221. It leads directly to FREN 201. This is an intensive course, where French is increasingly used. Classes, which are organised to enable students to learn French through its use, are activity-based, with exercises of increasing complexity. Students are encouraged to gain an active mastery of each new point by practice.

Learning Outcomes

In this course you will build up skills in all four areas of the language - reading, writing, speaking and listening. By the end you should be able to read long texts in French. You are also expected to be able to write confidently, to answer questions and express yourself well, and to have developed good listening comprehension.
