Reading French for Research Purposes

Program(s): Sli Undergrad

*Taught Online; not open to Pre-College students*  This intensive course is designed to help students with little or no background in French develop the reading comprehension skills necessary for academic research. To that end, students will work on grammar, vocabulary, and reading strategies. Students will read a range of scholarly texts, a number of which will be directly drawn from their respective areas of research. Some prior experience with French highly recommended.

Course Considerations

Students should have completed the equivalent of one year of introductory French.
