FREN 6514 - Applied Phonetics      

This course is for students wishing to develop and perfect their oral production.
The objectives of this course are two-fold:
- To develop an understanding of the principles that govern French phonetics and phonology.
- To put these principles into practice so that students may improve their pronunciation and aural comprehension.

Each class will include systematic work on pronunciation, rhythm and intonation through a wide array of oral exercises (perception and production). The phonetics course is adapted to the students’ mother tongue. Students will also work individually in a virtual language laboratory.

FREN 6532 - Intro: Teaching Methodologies      

Introduction to Teaching Methodologies

The aim of this course is to instruct students in the various approaches and methods used to teach French and will introduce students to the principles and techniques of teaching in the French classroom.

The course will also provide an overview of the CECFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). This flexible tool enables teachers to create targeted action-based activities and allows the evaluation of basic user (A1, A2), independent User (B1, B2) and proficient User (C1, C2) in language teaching.

We will study how to teach applied phonetics for English and Spanish native speakers as well as Arabic, Chinese, German, Italian and Portuguese native speakers. Methodology Pedagogy
