FRENCH 231 builds and expands upon the work done in FRENCH 101/102 or FRENCH 103. The primary goals of FRENCH 231 are to:

  • develop and refine your listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills;
  • provide you with strategies that allow you to communicate and read more effectively;
  • help you review previously learned grammatical structures and acquire new structures and uses;
  • develop your awareness of French-speaking cultures around the world, via the exploration of a variety of Francophone cultural documents (including Internet resources, literary texts, and demographic information).

Classes meet four times per week. Since communicative skills are emphasized daily, regular attendance and active participation are essential. Homework consists of reading and writing assignments, written exercises, and computer-based laboratory work, both audio and video. There are comprehensive course-wide tests as well as a final examination.
