FREN 211 - Intermediate French I


The primary goal for this course is to increase students’ fluency in both spoken and written French, while introducing them to the study of literary texts through in-class discussions as well as writing exercises. The course offers an intensive review of basic French grammar and numerous opportunities for students to develop their speaking skills in class and in informal conversation groups organized by the French language scholars. Students who complete French 211 and 212 will acquire the necessary fluency to follow advanced literature or film classes in French, or to study abroad in a French speaking university.
