Amcanion cyffredinol

The module aims to develop students' translation and reading comprehension skills through the study of texts varying in style and register. Students will be able to produce competent pieces of writing in French. The module will develop students' oral and aural skills through conversation exercises and selected audio-visual materials varying in tone and register. Throughout the module they will develop vocabulary acquisition and incorporate key expressions into oral and written work. They will develop a more complex understanding of key grammatical structures and an ability to use grammatical constructions in written and oral expression. They will be able to discuss and defend arguments and ideas in group and one-to-one discussions; as well as understand key aspects informing contemporary French identities. Students on this module will be working towards achieving B1+/B2 on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

Cynnwys cwrs

This module enables post A-level students to develop written and oral communicative skills in French by extending linguistic competence acquired at A-level. It comprises text-based classes in which students have the opportunity to develop translation and writing skills, as well as oral/aural classes, in which a range of audio and visual aids are employed to stimulate group discussions and debates. Throughout the module, students also have the opportunity to revise and consolidate key areas of grammar. The texts and materials used in this module are chosen from a range of sources in order to familiarise students with variations in tone and register. Through these materials, students will also gain an insight into particular Francophone themes and issues that relate to contemporary life and society in the French speaking world. Learning outside of the classroom is supported through a co-curricular Self-Study Portfolio.
