In FRENCH 231, students explore French culture and history through several films while also reviewing and expanding grammatical structures and vocabulary. These structures and vocabulary allow students to talk about the present, past and future, describe in detail, make comparisons, avoid repetition, and compose more sophisticated sentences. Through the various readings, listening activities and writing assignments, students also further develop their listening, speaking and writing skills.
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.
