French for Business (FLF3630)

30 credits

French For Business develops communicative language skills (linguistics, sociolinguistics and pragmatics) and communication strategies at the C1 level of the Common European Framework for Languages – CEFR, where students analyse, criticise/question and summarise/synthesise the content of several written and aural documents on business related topics.  To do so, it is based on proficient communicative activities such as reception, production and interaction and advocates an action-orientated approach of language teaching and learning.

This module develops all four core language skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing in a range of current business-related contexts.

Students will be expected to have an interest in using French in business contexts, although no formal prior business study is required.

The module is taught entirely in the target language, French.
