FR 321 - French for Professions: Emerging Independent Abroad I-III

At the end of this 3-credit course students will be able to:

  • Advance and practice skills gained in previous levels and during this course and within a Professional framework.
  • Construct arguments and logically develop a conversation based on opinions as to foster professional interaction within a workplace.

Research has demonstrated that study abroad can enhance every aspect of language ability. One of the most important general findings of this research is, however, that study abroad is most beneficial for the development of abilities related to social interaction. Students who go abroad can learn to do things with words, such as requesting, apologizing, or offering compliments, and they may also learn to interpret situations calling on such speech acts in ways that local people do…In short, and logically, study abroad has been shown to enhance the aspects of communicative competence that are most difficult to foster in classroom settings (IES Abroad MAP for Language and Intercultural Communication, p. 6).
