Sanam Nader-Esfahani (Section 01)
To gain as much confidence as possible in idiomatic French, we discuss French social institutions and culture, trying to appreciate differences between French and American viewpoints. Our conversational exchanges will touch upon such topics as French education, art and architecture, the status of women, the spectrum of political parties, minority groups, religion, and the position of France and French-speaking countries in the world. Supplementary work with audio and video materials.
Requisite: FREN 205, or completion of AP French, or four years of secondary school French in a strong program. Limited to 16 students. Fall semester: Professor Sigal. Spring semester: Professor Nader-Esfahani.
How to handle overenrollment: For the 2022-2023 academic year, priority will be given to first-year students, then second-year students, especially those who are planning to study in France, and to French majors and potential majors.
Students who enroll in this course will likely encounter and be expected to engage in the following intellectual skills, modes of learning, and assessment: Instruction in languages other than English; readings; oral presentations; group work; visual and aural analysis; creative work.
