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).

Course Requirements:

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.

Intended Audience:

No data submitted

Class Format:

Classes meet four times per week.
