French - FREN

1013 - Elementary French - 3 credit hours
Designed for students who have not had previous training in French, features not only intensive work in conversation but also French culture and grammar (acquiring the basic, active skills of speaking, reading, writing, and vocabulary building).  Students will use a multimedia program which employs only authentic French in order to use the language colloquially and creatively in a short amount of time. Note:  This beginning course could be waived based on high school transcripts or on CLEP test scores.  The course will neither be open nor will CLEP credit be given to native speakers.  Course rotation:  Fall.

1023 - Intermediate French - 3 credit hours
Consists of an intensive review of  basic  French grammar with emphases on conversation, on understanding  the language's structure and content, and on acquiring such basic skills as speaking, reading, writing, and vocabulary  building.  Students will use a multimedia program which employs authentic French in order to use more complex structures of the language colloquially and creatively in a short amount of time and meet three hours per week for explanation and demonstration. Note: The course will prepare students for French 2013.  Prerequisite: French 1013 or two years of secondary school French.  Course rotation: Spring.

2013 - French Language, Literature, and Culture - 3 credit hours
Provides an introduction to the critical reading of literary and utilitarian texts. Literary genres will introduce French culture; current events, newspaper or magazine articles, documentaries, and films will pinpoint differences in French diction, syntax, content, structure, and style from its historical origins to its contemporary expression.  Supplementary audio-visual materials such as CDs and DVDs will enhance understanding of spoken and written French and review grammar. The course will be conducted in French. Note: Native speakers of French will be allowed to enroll in the FREN 2013 if the literature and culture discussed are from a francophone country different from the student's own.  Prerequisite: French 1023, three to four years of secondary school French, or completion of AP French. Course rotation: Fall and Spring semesters contingent upon student enrollment.
