French 1010 Intermediate French

*tentative syllabus*


COURSE DESCRIPTION
French 1010 (Intermediate) is an intensive course designed as a continuation of French 1002 (Beginner), or as a course for students with some limited experience of French. This course prepares students for first-year university French, (French 1910 or 1900E), and possible DELF A1 or A2 certification.
French 1010 begins with a quick review of the basics of grammar and its terminology. We then move on to an active learning approach, calling on you to use your critical thinking skills and participate actively in the process of developing your knowledge of the French language. This will include the four skills approach of listening, reading, writing and speaking in French. There is a weekly Language Laboratory session which supplements in-class instruction.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

By the end of the course, students will be expected to:

  • be able to recognise and identify most grammatical terminology.
  • use the four skills to understand and use sentences and frequently used expressions related to areas of most immediate relevance (e.g. personal and family information, shopping, local geography, employment).
  • use the four skills to communicate in simple and routine tasks requiring a simple and direct exchange of information on familiar and routine matters.
  • describe in simple terms aspects of his/her background, immediate environment and matters in areas of immediate need.
