FREN1004 provides continued intensive study of the French language, expanding on basic communication skills, vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar sufficient to become functional at an advanced elementary level, both in written and spoken French (e.g. learning tenses and modes necessary to operate in the past, present and future). The course includes authentic reading (literary and other) and further listening practice to enable students to deal with everyday situations and further develop a critical understanding of francophone cultures and societies.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. communicate in more complex basic French, including understanding and producing spoken and written French;
  2. understand and implement more complex basic concepts of French grammar and pronunciation;
  3. discuss more complex aspects of the world in French with classmates and teacher; and
