In this course you will undertake the study of a language that is the vehicle of communication of one of the world's great cultures. You will learn to communicate in basic French and to read French texts. Even if French is not your major this course can be of great benefit to you. You may use it in your business, in your personal relations, or as a research tool in graduate school. After all, a study of French entails not only knowledge of the language, but an awareness of the history, culture and literature of France and the Francophone world.
1. Make ups: No make-ups for an unexcused absence are given. In case of excused absences, your professor may choose not to give a make-up; instead he may choose to count that quiz or examination as one of the grades to be dropped.
2. You are expected to come to class prepared every day. Study the material specified on the syllabus or in class! There may be a quiz even though there is not a written assignment.
3. Every quiz and examination will stress oral comprehension. Keep in mind that all class work will be conducted orally in French and your attendance and participation will have a definite impact on your grade. The activities of listening to a language, speaking a language, and writing a language all demand active skills. This class will require your active participation.
A language course is different from other courses at the college because you work on oral communication skills. The only place you can work on these skills is in your French class. Other classes may not require your attendance because you can learn the material from the book; however, there is no substitute for the dynamic interaction that takes place between you and your teacher--a trained language acquisition specialist. For this reason this course has a strong policy on absences. Students who have 9 or more absences for any reason will fail the course!
4. Your grade in this class will be given as follows:
60% Exams, including the final
N.B. *At least 2 quiz grades will be dropped. If you work hard, a third quiz grade may be dropped.
