Module content and teaching

Principal aims

This module provides a post-A level (or equivalent) entry for students wishing to progress through the French pathway of the International Business degree, focussing on business and international affairs. It aims to strengthen reading and writing skills and reinforce the communicative skills acquired during previous study of the French language. Focus will be put on understanding French social, economic and political issues to enable students to engage with native speakers when visiting a French-speaking country and/or in a French-speaking work environment.

Principal learning outcomes

"By the end of the module, students will have: developed competence in a broad range of complex and non-routine language tasks across a wide and often unpredictable variety of contexts, including business context; consolidated and expanded grammatical and syntactical competence; furthered their awareness and appreciation of French economic activity, social issues, history and culture; developed a proficiency in some of the stylistic resources of French, through an appreciation of literary and non-literary texts; gained confidence in interacting with native speakers, taking active part in discussions, telephone conversations with French- speaking people and administrations. By the end of the course, students should be able to perform at Level B2+ Independent user (vantage) of the Common European Framework."
