Educational aims

This topic aims to:

  • Enhance students' communicative competence through participation in activities involving exposure to different kinds of media and group or pair interaction
  • Expose students to independent and collaborative learning and to language learning skill development
Expected learning outcomes
On completion of this topic you will be expected to be able to:

  1. Communicate in speech and writing on a range of familiar topics in French, using moderately complex language to produce simple connected texts
  2. Recognise, reproduce and describe grammatical, syntactical, lexical and phonetic structures of the French language acquired throughout the semester

Key dates and timetable

(1), (2)

Each class is numbered in brackets.
Where more than one class is offered, students normally attend only one.

Classes are held weekly unless otherwise indicated.

FULL

If you are enrolled for this topic, but all classes for one of the activities (eg tutorials) are full,
contact your College Office for assistance. Full classes frequently occur near the start of semester.

Students may still enrol in topics with full classes as more places will be made available as needed.

If this padlock appears next to an activity name (eg Lecture), then class registration is closed for this activity.

Class registration normally closes at the end of week 2 of each semester.

Classes in a stream are grouped so that the same students attend all classes in that stream.
Registration in the stream will result in registration in all classes.
  Unless otherwise advised, classes are not held during semester breaks or on public holidays.
