- This language unit is designed for near-native students who have completed FREN1405 French Studies 5. It furthers its outcomes by consolidating and expanding more fundamentals of French grammar and French and francophone cultures. It creates numerous opportunities for a deeper understanding of French as a foreign language. Students expand their cultural and language awareness by reading and engaging with a full-length text chosen for its cultural and literary merits. The unit leads to FREN2407 French Studies 7.
- Students are able to (1) build on prior knowledge of French language and culture; (2) extend written and oral expression in French in the classroom and authentic settings; (3) consolidate pronunciation and reading skills; (4) analyse and imitate models of written and oral communication dealing with day-to-day topics; (5) practise using audiovisual and internet resources in class and independently; (6) reinforce their discipline about learning a foreign language by regular homework and preparations; and (7) enhance metalinguistic understanding of French and English. Students acquire an advanced proficiency in writing and oral skills in French in the range B1 and B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
- Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) in-class tests; (2) online quiz and student-led projects; and (3) participation. Further information is available in the unit outline.
Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit except in the case of a bachelor's pass degree student who has obtained a mark of 45 to 49 overall and is currently enrolled in this unit, and it is the only remaining unit that the student must pass in order to complete their course.
