FRNC2604: French 4

This unit follows FRNC2603. It focuses on building inter-and intra-cultural competence. Students engage with audiovisual clips and a series of short texts in order to identify areas of cross-cultural misunderstanding in everyday life. They then conduct an information gathering of their own on which they later report in class. The unit concentrates on the grammatical structures and skills required to perform these tasks: complex sentence construction (including reported speech) and consolidation and development of strategies for speaking.
