Course Description

Language teaching falls into three broad areas all of which complement each other and contribute to the student's overall command of the French language. One class taken by a native French speaker focuses on oral communicative skills; while another develops competence in the written language at a formal level and also concentrates on the practical applications of language, developing both written and spoken competence in a variety of different registers.
The Junior and Senior Honours language courses form a continuum for which the final assessment is not made until the end of the Senior Honours year. FR3041 aims at preparing students for their Final Examinations in written and spoken language at the end of their Senior Honours year.  It is assessed by means of six pieces of work which are required to gain the credits for this course.

See French Handbook for detailed explanation.
Resit: 1 two-hour written examination (75%) and 1 oral examination (25%).

Formative Assessment

All assignments done in classes have a formative role.

Feedback

Written assignments completed as homework receive CAS marks, which the Course Guide links to specific marking criteria (though these marks do not count towards the classification of the degree), and written feedback in the form of tutors' comments is also given. For activities carried out in class verbal feedback is given by the tutor and other members of the group. Tutors have office hours at which further feedback may be sought.
