Brief description

This module forms part of the core Level 3 programme in European Languages (French Minor) and is one of the three written language courses taken in that year. It aims to deepen students' understanding of French as a written language, and emphasises translation from French, paying attention in particular to accurate and idiiomatic use of the target language, English. Students who successfully complete the module should feel that they have a sound awareness of the workings of French grammar, and that they can translate competently and accurately from French into English.

You will attend only the fortnightly classes followed by students taking FR30130, and produce less written assessed work: you will be required to submit not more than five translations from French into English.

It is your responsibility to make sure that the tutor for each class knows that you are a 3S European Languages, minor language student. Written work must be handed in on time: your tutor, like you, works to a demanding timetable and will not be able to accommodate late submission of work.

Marks for assessed work will make up 40% of the total marks for the module, and it will thus be evident from simple calculations that failure to hand in work as required will rapidly reduce your overall marks on the module.

Learning outcomes

Students who successfully complete the module should be able to comprehend and translate accurately from a variety of registers in French.
