Amcanion cyffredinol

The aim of this module is to enable students who have completed A level (or equivalent) in French to build on and further develop their writing skills.

Students who take this module will work towards achieving level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

Cynnwys cwrs

Classes are divided between introducing and practising grammatical structures and work based on a range of sources. This is done through:

  1. Developing an understanding of the key grammatical structures and the ability to apply these in grammar exercises, translations and essays.
  2. Developping translation and reading skills through studying texts that vary in style and register.
  3. Developing translation skills, both into and from French, and producing pieces of writing, such as short essays, in French.
  4. Developping and expanding vocabulary.

We use the following as a course book throughout the year:

Simone Renaud and Dominique van Hooff. En Bonne Forme (8th edition) (New York: John Wiley and Sons, 2008)

We also recommend the students purchase the following:

  • A large bilingual dictionary, such as the latest edition of the Collins-Robert or the Oxford-Hachette.
  • A large monolingual dictionary, such as the latest edition of Le Petit Robert.
  • A detailed French grammar reference book to complement the course book. We recommend the latest edition of Hawkins and Towell’s French Grammar and Usage or Glanville Price’s A Comprehensive French Grammar. Although it is somewhat briefer than the two previous books, we also suggest that Ferrat’s A French Reference Grammar is suitable for first year purposes.”
