FRNC3633: French 7

This unit is designed for students who have completed FRNC3002. It explores French and Francophone current events and contemporary debates through texts (literature and theory), images (including films) and news-related multimedia sources. Students consolidate communicative and analytical skills with oral and written activities designed to examine some of the political/social/cultural/spatial and generational divides that define today's Francophone worlds. Through essay writing, close analysis, oral presentation and in-class discussion, students further develop their advanced language skills and strengthen their grasp of contemporary French and Francophone societies and cultures.
