FRNC3002: French 6

This unit is a continuation of FRNC3001 French 5. Students will continue to develop their listening and speaking skills thatwere the focus of FRNC3001. An added emphasis in FRNC3002 will be on the development of reading and writing skills. Grammar consolidation will continue, and students will learn self-editing skills. They will also be introduced to preliminary translation skills and build their independent research techniques as well as their literary analysis techniques that were introduced in FRNC3001. In FRNC3002 this will be done through the study of a contemporary text in various forms: novel, film, chanson and documents relating to French and Francophone contemporary history.
