FRENCH 232 uses feature-length French-language films to explore aspects of French history, culture and society that include: the French colonization of Vietnam (formerly Indochina), immigration, the French education system, family and personal relationships, and identity.
Throughout the course of the term, students will be expected to review and learn various grammatical elements and vocabulary in order to participate in classroom activities and discussions related to the assigned films and their contexts.
Linguistically, we will focus on narrating in the past, avoiding repetition, hypothesizing, supporting opinions, linking ideas, and composing more sophisticated sentences.
Since communicative skills are emphasized, daily, regular attendance and active participation are essential and will be included in the final grade. There will be daily homework assignments, frequent quizzes, several compositions, oral evaluations, chapter tests, and a final examination.
