Elementary French (FREN*1150)

Code and section: FREN*1150*01

Term: Winter 2017

Instructor: D. Cornelio (course coordinator)


This is a course in French grammar, oral and written skills for students who have Ontario Grade 11 French or equivalent but not above.  Please note that FREN*1150 cannot be counted toward a specialization in French.  Students with native or near-native ability in French, including Francophone and French immersion students, will not be admitted to this course.



In the three hour class period, students work to develop their oral and written skills in French, learn or review basic grammar principles, practice oral skills through communication games and discussion of reading materials.



By the end of the course, students should be able to achieve basic communication in oral and written French, referring to past, present or future situations.



The course will be interactive and conducted mainly in French. Active student participation is not only expected, but is a vital aspect of learning a language, and pre-class preparation of assigned materials is crucial to active participation. Students are encouraged to work on their own making use of suggested websites to reinforce their knowledge of the French language.
