FR 251 - Intermediate Intensive French Language and Culture
This intensive review of French Grammar is designed to allow students to attain a higher level of proficiency through in-class learning as well as immersion in the Parisian culture. To make the most of this unique opportunity, class time is spent learning knowledge essential to daily life in Paris and encounters outside the classroom. Students are expected to keep a blog/journal with the theme of “survival tactics” in French of their linguistic and cultural experiences in Paris. Students discuss occurrences they experienced in Paris that they would never expect to see in the United States and should detail any words or phrases that seem typically French and why they seem that way. In addition, student blogs should discuss coping with cultural differences and should incorporate new vocabulary and grammar learned in the classroom.
