FREN2001 Policies and Information (TR Sections) Fall 2008 Who can enroll? Students enrolled in FREN 2001 must have had the prerequisite classes FREN 1001 and FREN 1002 OR FREN 1110 at UGA, or have received transfer credit for their equivalent at another institution, or have placed into 2001 through the UGA foreign language placement test. Introduction to FREN 1001 through 2002 The first four courses in French (or the first three courses for those who start with FREN 1110) form a unified program designed to help you develop the ability to speak, read, write, and understand the language. You will also learn about how various people who speak French conduct their lives. The majority of class time will be spent working on speaking French; you will develop the other skills primarily through assignments. To achieve these goals, your teacher will speak only French in class. Since talking about grammar is not as beneficial as using the grammar, you should not expect your teacher to devote class time to explanations of grammatical concepts. S/he will conduct exercises requiring you to use the new structures, but afterward will be happy to answer any remaining questions. Consult your syllabus and your teacher to determine whether you are in the right course. Goals At the end of this class, you should be able to: use French in spontaneous ways maintain conversations with someone who speaks only French ask and answer questions on multiple topics express opinions understand most everything that goes on in the classroom, as well as narratives and dialogues read and understand stories, newspaper articles, etc. write expository prose with descriptions and opinions, linking sentences and paragraphs. The majority of class time will be spent working on speaking French; you will develop the other skills primarily through assignments. To achieve these goals your teacher will conduct class in French.
