WHAT WILL I LEARN?

This course focuses on developing the four major language skills of listening, speaking, reading and
writing in French.

In addition, the course covers sociolinguistics, specialist translation, contemporary French culture and society, and the language of business.

In all years you will study different areas of the French language and will apply this to research projects. Depending on which route you wish to follow, you will choose from topics in French Culture and Society, the Francophone World, Translation and French Language in the media and the workplace.

HOW WILL THIS COURSE BE TAUGHT?
