This second year French language course which runs in the first half-session is only open to students who have passed FR1528. It will improve their written, oral and aural skills, and is one of the two second year French language courses (along with FR2512) that has to have passed to be allowed into the French honours Programme.
|Session||First Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
Building on work done in FR 1528, 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 and oral language). Classes on grammatical and linguistic analysis will contribute to the development of both sets of skills. An additional grammar hour covers areas of grammar not covered in previous courses. 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. In order to gain exemption, students must obtain overall a minimum grade of D2.
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
The course will be assessed on the basis of continuous coursework by way of four equally weighted online tests:
Week 5 Translation Test
Week 7 Prose Test
Week 10 Grammar Test
Week 11 Oral Test that will have to be completed in 48 hours.
Each test worth 25% of mark
