FREN 3301

Upper Intermediate

Level 3 - Upper Intermediate French is designed for students who have had significant previous instruction in French and are already able to function independently in full immersion. Typically, students at this level demonstrate textual/writing ability beyond the sentence level. The individual components of the program are designed to complement one another, and all include intensive study of the language. Students will also arrive at a broader appreciation of French and Francophone cultures and literatures. Students in Level 3 take four classes each day, awarding a total of three units of credit.

By the end of this seven-week immersion program, students should reach a B2 level of proficiency in all language skills. They will have no problem navigating a variety of real-world situations and will be able to speak with increasing ease, fluency, and spontaneity, to engage with a wide range of materials from various contexts, to recognize implicit meaning, and to show sophistication in all their skills.
3301 Grammar in Written Context
This course will include authentic materials (current events in the media, songs, films, and literary texts). Students will acquire tools which will allow them to express their own opinions and to develop their ability to describe diverse complex situations using various tones and forms of language.
This course will help students improve their writing skills gradually. They will write text of various lengths using different discourse modes (descriptive, narrative, explicative and argumentative) and grammatical structures learned in class. Students will strengthen their knowledge and language skills through individual and collective assignments. At the end of the session, students will be able to write a coherent and pertinent text that will underline their grammar and written skills.
