FR 161 - Comprehensive Beginning French

(6.00 cr.)

A review course for students who have had three years of language study in high school and for students who wish to begin a second modern language. The material covered is essentially the same as for the FR 101-102 sequence, except that it is covered in one semester instead of two. This includes a thorough grounding in the five language skills: reading, listening, speaking, writing, and cultural knowledge, as well as an understanding of the structure of the language, cultures, and literatures of the countries that speak French. Special emphasis is placed on preparing students to begin work at the intermediate language level. Open to students who wish to begin study in a second modern language or who place into FR 102 . Contact time includes six 50-minute class sessions per week. Counts as two, three-credit courses. Laboratory study outside the classroom is required. Required for students who have completed three years of high school French, who wish to continue language study in French, and who place into FR 101 . Closed to students who have taken FR 101 , FR 102 , or the equivalent.
