This course, which meets two hours a day, covers in one term the equivalent of a second year non-intensive college course. The goal of the course is to bring students to a level of proficiency defined by the ability to communicate with some ease, if not perfectly, with a native speaker of French, in spoken and written language, and to understand the general meaning and most details of a French text, written or spoken (lecture) of a non-technical nature and of general interest.
The lecture component of the course is devoted to a thorough review and an expansion of grammatical concepts and to the development of readings and listening skills. Exposure to primary source materials (current event magazines or newspapers) and to texts of cultural and literary value develop reading ability and vocabulary. Listening skills are trained in informal conversational exchanges and in lecture on French contemporary issues. The discussion sections, which meet in small groups, emphasize the development of speaking skills through extensive practice analyzing and discussing current topics. Writing skills are refined through composition assignments which provide students the opportunity to improve the accuracy and expressiveness of their style. This course includes individual diagnosis of each student’s pronunciation with a personalized prescription for exercises. At the end of the term, the Proficiency Exam evaluates the level of performance in communicative skills achieved by each student.
