FREN301: French Language: Written Skills (CEFR: C1/C2) - 15 credits

Final year

This module is a half unit and is integrated with the French Language: Oral Skills module.

This module together with the oral skills module consists of three hours tuition per week.

This module has two main aims. The first one is to enhance students’ linguistic proficiency with emphasis on understanding of spoken and written French, the speaking of French (prepared and spontaneous) in both formal and informal settings, the writing of French, and the systematic study of French lexis, grammar and syntax. The second aim is to increase students’ awareness, knowledge and understanding of contemporary France.

By the end of this module, students should have developed an informed interest in the society and culture of the French-speaking world. They should also have acquired almost native-speaker abilities in both spoken and written language.
