This level focuses on developing listening comprehension, oral competence, and socio-cultural communicative proficiency and on acquiring strategies for oral and written expression through progressive practice and phonetics exercises. Various cultural aspects of French-speaking communities worldwide will be studied through readings and recordings.
The course is divided into 4 units. Students will be taught 4 classes a day: Vocabulary and civilization (211); Introduction to literature (212); Oral activities and Phonetics (213) and Grammar (214).

This French composition course features a creative approach to process writing. Students, individually or in small groups, select from descriptive documents to construct paragraphs leading to a story with embedded grammatical, rhetorical, and stylistic constraints. User-friendly instructive tools intended to stimulate creativity and facilitate language accuracy are readily available on the instructor's website, where students have access to a panoply of descriptive and narrative excerpts featuring various genres, moods, and registers. They also find pedagogically relevant reference works such as lexical and semantic webs, dictionaries, encyclopedias, grammatical descriptions, literary, historical and Francophone civilizations links. This carefully orchestrated course is a natural environment for 'scaffolding' and 'noticing' the gap between the language they experience from the various sources of input and their own output. It also aims at targeting 'avoidance' and 'overuse' strategies that often immobilize learners' language development and creativity.

Intro Francophone World
Introduction to the Francophone World

The course provides an introduction to Francophone culture and literature, while strengthening students’ knowledge of French grammar and improving their writing skills. Given that it would be impossible to study all the countries that have been under French influence, we have made a preliminary selection of countries in order to have an overview of the situation. Key words will guide our journey through the Francophone world: colonization, language, identity, colonialism, intercultural relations. The relation between the Francophone countries and France today is the result of a historical process that marked the French as well as the indigenous people. It is therefore necessary to study certain aspects of the history to better understand and grasp the concept "Francophonie", a term that is difficult to define, ambiguous, complex but rich in meanings. The study of literary works, films and other documents will help student to better understand the differences and similarities that exist in the Francophone world. Finally, students will be able to assess the role played by the French language in the quest for national and personal identity. This class will demand a lot of reading and there will be group discussions daily. The student must come to the class prepared in order to be able to participate actively in the group discussions.
Priority will be given to two main skills, reading comprehension and writing.

Young People and Politics
Transformations in the relationships between young people and politics are obvious in all Western democracies. Engagement in traditional political institutions has declined in recent decades, leading to what some have seen as a crisis in citizenship. What are the most characteristic transformations towards politics and how could we explain them? What is so special about young people’s politics in all established democracies?

The course will explore the different aspects of politicization: level of interest, involvement, voting, political participation, partisan affiliation, political choices, and also demonstrations and protest. It will study the emergence of a new model of citizenship within the young generations compared to their elders. Social and political cleavages which exist don’t have the same impact on all categories. There is a clear division between young people with and without educational background and qualifications and their political choices are not the same.
More broadly, this course will give many clues to better understand politics in France and the French society today, working with news, surveys, and a wide diversity of research and knowledge from the social sciences. It will propose also many comparisons with other European countries.
