Course aim

French Language and Society
This module aims to develop students' ability to demonstrate some understanding of the French language, as well as speak, read and write French with relative proficiency.
To complete the training, in addition to language classes, we propose to the students that they learn about contemporary French society and cultures by examining its products, practices and perspectives through thematic study
Using authentic sources such as newspapers and magazines, films, music, stories and literary excerpts students will develop language skills and communicative proficiency in real life settings.
All courses will highlight the importance of culture, history, politics as well as cover the challenges that France is facing at the moment: Globalization, Europeanization, secularism, communitarianism, and examine the role of the central state etc...
Professors will help students to develop communication skills through regular class discussions, one-on-one conversations, role plays and oral presentations with classmates.
The aim of this course is that students will gain fluency in French while increasing their knowledge of France.
