French Way(s)
FREN 223
Fall 2008 not offered

What are French ways? Do the French still wear berets? How do they really speak? What is important to them? How do they view themselves? What do they think about issues facing their country? What do they think of Americans? Students will explore these questions by examining the French press, comic strips, television and radio broadcasts, as well as other selected readings. This course is designed for highly motivated students with a firm foundation in French who wish to refine their skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing while gaining more insight into French life and culture.

Essential Capabilities: Intercultural Literacy, Speaking
Students will learn the basis of contemporary French society (politics, welfare system, immigration, etc.) while refining their skills in speaking, reading, listening and writing.
