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 the following 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.

3302 French Phonetics
In mastering a foreign language, nothing is more important than learning to pronounce the sounds, words, phrases, and utterances so as to be understood by native speakers. Though smooth, flowing, elegant, musical and so romantic, the French language sounds also untamable with, for example, its unpronounceable “r,” its nasal vowels and its liaisons. This course provides in-depth exposure to how French sounds correspond to the writing system. French pronunciation is articulated with the phonetic symbols of the International Phonetic Association (IPA) so that the student is able to decode the phonemic transcriptions found in French dictionaries as well as in other language dictionaries.
