This course is only available for students in the BA International Studies.
In this course you learn how to handle successfully a variety of basic social situations you may encounter in daily life in France or other French-speaking countries, or when meeting French-speaking people. You learn to maintain non-complicated face-to-face conversations, and to perform such tasks as introducing yourself, asking directions, understanding a TV program or writing an e-mail. These basics are acquired by using the textbook and through a wide range of real-life situations, performed either individually or in groups. Grammar, cultural topics, current issues and pronunciation are main concerns, too.
We will use : – Alter ego, Méthode de français A1, Hachette, 2006 – Alter ego 1, Cahier d’activités – Grammaire progressive du français, niveau débutant, avec un CD audio, Clé internationale, collection : Progressive, 2010 + corrigé.
This course enables the student to achieve a good level A1 of the Common European Frame (CEF) and prepare the DELF A1.
