This subject offers students who have completed French 1, or equivalent, an increasing immersion into the study of the French language and of French-speaking cultures throughout the world. Students will develop further autonomy in their study of more sophisticated grammatical structures of the language and in their interpretation of the cultural reference of authentic texts. These documents will be of greater complexity in relation to the previous semester’s work and will include written texts, for example poems and proverbs, and audio-visual material such as songs and a feature film. Students will undertake a research project on an aspect of French-speaking cultures, and will produce written work on the basis of a preparatory oral presentation in class. Reading and writing skills will be developed through the interpretation of authentic texts in French with the guided use of dictionaries and other resources and with a specific focus on the production of summaries (résumés) of the texts.
