|Description || This module presents a fusion of linguistic competencies and content analysis to allow students to continue developing a depth and breadth of subject expertise within French and Francophone studies and explaining the significance and relevance of that knowledge. In place of the traditional separation between language and content in Modern Languages curricula, and through the interrelation of comprehension, speaking, and writing, students on the module will develop their understanding and expertise within French language in conjunction with a consistent focus on cultural awareness, with specific reference to living and working or studying in a French-speaking country. The module will build on knowledge acquired in previous Core modules to prepare students for everyday interactions in the country concerned, by enabling them to acquire a sophisticated understanding of relevant aspects of the target culture. Students will have regular opportunities to use technology to understand language and culture. |
|Learning Outcomes || By the end of the module students should be able to: |
make appropriate use of up-to-date technology - derived from research and pedagogy that are current in French - to analyse, understand, and draw inferences regarding key aspects of French language and culture from a variety of critical perspectives.
demonstrate use of varied academic methods and concepts fundamental to the advanced understanding of languages and cultures, and apply this understanding in order to prepare for time spent living and studying or working in a French-speaking country.
demonstrate independent learning, reflective learning, critical thinking, working with others, and the ability to perform appropriate research tasks in order critically to examine diverse local and global phenomena relating to languages and cultures.
demonstrate higher-level use of the French language to level B2 and beyond of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) for languages.
