FREN 2014 - French Grammar and Expression


1 Course Unit(s)
One of two non-sequential gateway courses leading to advanced studies in French (3000-level courses). This course refines grammatical competencies and sharpens oral expression in French. Through the study of how texts communicate sophisticated ideas, students investigate grammatical, syntactical, and lexical strategies. By surveying different forms of expression (including literary, historical, cinematic, and artistic) as well as current media (newscasts, newspapers and magazines, websites, blogs, videos, etc.), students practice grammar and idiomatic usage while making connections between culture and language. Writing assignments include le résumé, le compte rendu, and le portrait. Students will also practice phonetics to support enhanced fluency and precision in oral expression.
