Elementary Language Courses

Students who have begun language study in high school must take a placement test to determine whether they should enroll in a first-year (101), first-year review (103), or a second-year language course. We also recommend that students who began language study at another college or university take the placement test. Please check the Evaluations & Examinations website (http://www.umich.edu/~eande/place/sched.htm) for placement test dates and locations.

Demand for elementary language courses can be high, and students may not be able to enroll in the class of their choosing. Please see your general academic advisor for help in electing courses.

Attendance in elementary language courses is mandatory. Students who miss either of the first two meetings of the class may be dropped from the course by the department, to allow other students to register.

In French 232, we will use literature, magazine articles, movies, videos and songs to explore the history of France and several other francophone countries from the 1940's until the present. We will begin by studying life in France during the Second World War. Then, through some videos and the literature of several other francophone cultures, we will examine the effects of colonisation and decolonisation on language use, culture and identity. The last part of the course will focus on the politics and social climate in modern French society.

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. Linguistically, we will focus on supporting opinions, making comparisons, hypothesizing, and composing more and more sophisticated sentences.

Classes meet four times per week in sections of 20-25 students. Since communicative skills are emphasized, daily, regular attendance and active participation are essential and will be included in the final grade. There will be several short writing assignments, two compositions, two tests, and a final examination.
