2020-2021 Undergraduate Academic Catalog

CLANG 2302 French IV

This course offers students an opportunity to continue working on skills developed in French III while placing an emphasis on contemporary French and Francophone culture. Students will strengthen their writing skills though regularly-assigned compositions, will gain higher proficiency in speaking and listening comprehension though weekly class discussions and in-class listening exercises. At the same time, students will be engaged in readings on contemporary culture that provide the starting point for class discussions. Texts chosen will address the issues of relevance today and may concern politics, history, sociology, or the arts. Students also participate in cultural events and excursions, for example a cheese tasting and a Soirée du cinéma. The semester's work will culminate in a writing/research project of the student's choosing.
