Primary Instructor:

FRENCH 103 is a course for students with some prior language study in French, and covers the same material presented in FRENCH 101 and 102. Entrance into the course is by recommendation of the placement exam or with the permission of the coordinator. (Information on the placement exam is available online at www.lsa.umich.edu/rll/langinstruct/placementtest.html.) Because students placed in FRENCH 103 are already familiar with some of the material, the course moves at a rapid pace.
By the end of the course, students will have a good working vocabulary and strong listening comprehension skills; they should be able to express themselves in French (both in writing and orally) using most of the basic structural patterns in the language. Students will also have a general knowledge of some French-speaking cultures. Technology (multi-media, the web) will be used to aid in developing writing, reading, and listening skills as well as cultural competency.

Course Requirements:

Students will need to plan on spending at least 8 to 10 hours each week preparing for daily lessons. Tests and quizzes (with both aural and written components) will be administered to check students' assimilation of the material covered in class. There will be hourly exams, quizzes, a final exam, writing assignments, and speaking tests. Since active participation is essential to the development of strong communicative skills, regular attendance is required and participation will be included in the final grade.
