French Society and Culture

  • French Society and CultureAfter completing the first three semesters of French, students have the choice of enrolling in three courses at an upper intermediate or advanced level. (3000-4000 level). Possible course offerings include any French courses taught within those levels, but with an emphasis on thematic or subject links throughout the courses (e.g., cinema, literature and history from a specific time period, etc.).

The immersion project entails:

  1. a) collecting classwork (e.g. projects, assignments, in-class activities, quizzes, exams, etc.) from the three language semesters in the portfolio provided by Brightspace,
  2. b) reflecting on the language learning process (which in-class or outside-of-the-classroom assignments were the most helpful throughout the three semesters), cultural awareness and intercultural competence acquisition, and application of the language(s) in the future life (concrete examples),
  3. c) creating a final creative artifact (in English or in the target language(s), including movies, posters, visual journals, performances, etc.) after completing the three semesters, through which present one’s own language and culture experience throughout the three courses.
