3. Course contents *

In 3 cycles of 3-4 weeks per semester, a topic is introduced based on a dossier about a contemporary French thinker or author, with accompanying speaking and writing assignments. In conversation sessions, students make an individual oral contribution, followed by a collective discussion and tips from the teachers in connection with. language use, pronunciation, presentation skills, etc. The writing assignments are provided with individual and / or collective feedback.
Students work autonomously on expanding and deepening their vocabulary on the basis of the handbook, which also includes listening files that make it possible to practice French pronunciation independently.
In addition, students are expected to develop the attitude to give French a prominent presence in their daily lives, by actively following French-language news, attending French-language cultural events, etc.
