Au plaisir des textes
11 October 2021
Mondays from 11:00 to 13:00. This course will be taught remotely via an interactive online classroom.
This course is for students with advanced language skills (A-level or above) who have the ability to hold a general conversation in French.
The course will be taught through the medium of French.
Ce cours s’adresse à des étudiants qui cherchent à perfectionner leurs connaissances du français et de la culture française à travers l’étude de textes variés d’hier et d’aujourd’hui tels des extraits de diverses sources, lettres, fables, poèmes, chansons.
Ces textes seront un point de départ pour des activités et des échanges de points de vue qui vous permettront d’approfondir votre connaissance de la langue française ainsi que du contexte social et culturel.
Learning and teaching
The emphasis of the course is on participation and students are encouraged to actively participate in class through various non-threatening forms of activities designed to stimulate communication.
Coursework and assessment
To award credits we need to have evidence of the knowledge and skills you have gained or improved. Some of this has to be in a form that can be shown to external examiners so that we can be absolutely sure that standards are met across all courses and subjects.
You will not have formal examinations but you may have a portfolio of written texts and class participation. Our assessments are flexible to suit the course and the student.
The most important element of assessment is that it should enhance your learning. Our methods are designed to increase your confidence and we try very hard to devise ways of assessing you that are enjoyable and suitable for adults with busy lives.
Library and computing facilities
As a student on this course you are entitled to join and use the University’s library and computing facilities. Find out more about using these facilities.
Our aim is access for all. We aim to provide a confidential advice and support service for any student with a long term medical condition, disability or specific learning difficulty. We are able to offer one-to-one advice about disability, pre-enrolment visits, liaison with tutors and co-ordinating lecturers, material in alternative formats, arrangements for accessible courses, assessment arrangements, loan equipment and dyslexia screening.
