Course Description

Building on work done in FR1529, the course will develop further language skills, both receptive (aural comprehension capacity through tuition based on video material; reading comprehension through analysis of written French and translation into English) and productive (translation into French; oral language). Classes on grammatical and linguistic analysis will contribute to the development of both sets of skills. In addition students will complete a structured self learning programme of aural study and grammatical reinforcement study.
Assessment will be based on a 2-hour written examination (75%) and an oral examination (25%). The written examination will consist of a prose and a Use of French exercise. The oral examination will test both comprehension and productive skills. However, satisfactory performance in the course work assessments will qualify students for exemption from the examination.
