Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This subject is designed to provide students with a systematic revision and consolidation of the essential structures of French. In class students will study grammar, syntax and vocabulary in practical communicative situations. We also stress the productive aspect of language use in context, while extending grammatical and lexical knowledge and refining oral skills by means of regular small-group activities. Listening skills are also developed by use of authentic documents including interviews, songs and film. On completion of the subject students should be able to sustain conversations and express opinions on topics of general interest, have consolidated their knowledge of all basic structures of French, and have attained a good level of competence in written production in the target language. The subject should also enable them to obtain an A2 level in the Common European Framework.
