This course builds on the language skills and cultural knowledge acquired in FREN2024 or through equivalent pathways of study. The aim of the course is to further develop students' reading, writing, listening and speaking skills in French, and to strengthen the capacity to reflect critically on cross-cultural differences between Francophone cultures and other cultures.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- competently engage with increasingly complex linguistic forms of the language in both written and spoken contexts;
- understand and critically reflect on a range of written and audiovisual texts, such as literary extracts, short films, and songs;
- recognise and use an increasingly wide range of language styles and registers;
- present sophisticated discussions and arguments in spoken and written French; and
- understand aspects of Francophone cultures and societies and reflect on cross-cultural differences.
