-  Upper Intermediate French I FREN 224 is an upper intermediate language class that aims to refine the skills acquired in Intermediate French I & II or equivalent courses and to enhance students knowledge of French and the Francophone world. The course uses an interactive approach to the review of French grammar, stressing communicative competence and is focused on: the understanding of concrete or abstract topics in a complex text (oral or written); the production of clear and detailed oral and written communication on a number of subjects (construction of arguments to defend ones opinion, explain ones viewpoint); the ability to correct ones own mistakes (when speaking or writing); vocabulary building, grammatical accuracy and socio-cultural competency using a wide variety of contemporary authentic documents (newspaper articles, videos, literary excerpts, blogs, music, etc.) of the French-Speaking world. The FREN 224 syllabus follows the Common European Framework of Reference guidelines for the B2.1 level. Three hours a week will be devoted to providing students with tools for interacting with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers possible without strain for either party. Students will be able to consolidate and expand their comprehension, speaking, reading and writing skills in French while discussing socio-cultural contemporary topics. Students will share ideas in collaborative small groups and whole class discussion, oral presentation, debates, or other assignments. French grammatical structures such as relative pronouns, the passive form, and the subjunctive, will be studied within a task-based approach. Lectures and class discusclick hereclick here.
