Goals

French 201 is an intermediate-level language course designed to answer the needs of students coming from varying backgrounds who hope to review thoroughly and expand on the grammar taught in our 100-level classes. French 201 aims at the further development of the students' four skills (reading, writing, listening, and speaking) up to an intermediate level of proficiency. Emphasis is put on reviewing grammar and experiencing the language in its cultural contexts, through the use of a multi-media approach relying not only on a grammar textbook and on grammar and vocabulary exercises, but also on the web, current newspaper and magazine clippings, recent radio and television programs.

French 201 is taught through an experiential methodology, which entails exclusive use of French in the classroom, emphasis on communicative skills, interactive and contextualized use of grammar and daily practice outside of class.
