Section Description

I. Course Description French 052 is designed to integrate all of the knowledge attained in the previous levels with a particular emphasis on honing students' ability to interact with others in both written and spoken French through collaborative group activities. Many of the activities will help develop comprehension skills and a large active vocabulary necessary for advanced level courses. In addition to reviewing key grammar points, we will gain practice in developing reading comprehension strategies through study of short literary works and essays from Imaginez, as well as additional materials from other sources the professor may provide. Throughout the semester this course will focus on expanding awareness of Francophone cultures. II. Course Objectives By the end of Intermediate French 052, you will be able to: 1. Compose and revise written assignments in present and past time frames with learned material while expressing personal opinions. 2. Summarize and discuss texts using critical reflection and cultural references. 3. Demonstrate an ability to converse about social and cultural topics with ease and confidence in all major time frames. 4. Indicate a comprehension of French in personal and social contexts through verbal and written responses. 5. Recognize and discuss some of the major historical events and cultural aspects of the Francophone World.
