-  A continuation of the A1 level work begun in FREN 101 and its journey into the French language and around the Francophone world. With an approach that is communicative and collaborative, and inductive and interactive, the course develops understanding and the mobilisation of knowledge as savoir-faire. French grammatical structures studied include: common verbs in past and future tenses, reflexive verbs, personal and relative pronouns, and comparatives. These will be applied in practice through: listening: understanding everyday communication about yourself, your family, and your immediate and concrete environment reading: understanding familiar vocabulary in simple communicative structures; such as advertisements, signs, menus speaking: asking questions for information or about familiar or everyday topics, and engaging with others in simple conversation using simple sentences and expressions to describe places, people, objects, and concepts writing: short descriptions and narratives; making comparisons and discussing cultural differences; giving advice and making plans; and expressing opinions, ideas, emotions, and sensations FREN 102 involves three hours a week of classroom work, plus (for daytime sections) five one-hour sessions per term of oral and aural practice. At the end of the course, students will be able to understand simple communication and to communicate simply about familiar and frequently-encountered topics: events and experiences; food and its socio-cultural practices; music and cinema, books and writers, and entertainment and leisure; environment and climate; and life ?a fran?se. Classes are mostly conducted in French, with some English as needed for explanation.
