French for Proficient Speakers (FLF3915)

15 credits

French for Proficient Students develops communicative language skills (linguistics, sociolinguistics and pragmatics) and communication strategies at the C2 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 the same topic, but shedding light on different aspects.

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 as well as proficient grammatical and lexical structures.

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