Early Intermed French
This course will concentrate on the systematic acquisition of strategies for written expression through progressive practice, with topical review of basic morphological and syntactic structures. Different kind of texts (descriptive, informative, argumentative, poetic, …) will be used to illustrate and explain the grammar studied and to be a model for the writing tasks. The entire class will revolve around writing projects in response to the needs of students : how to describe a past action, a dream or a life project, how to propose something to someone, how to compare things, movies, persons or events, how to express an objection, etc.
