Description:

French 412K is the third of a three-semester course sequence designed to  to continue the development of your listening, speaking, reading and writing skills in French. You will learn useful vocabulary, grammatical structures and cultural information, all naturally embedded in videos and online activities. This course uses the first-year French curriculum of Français interactif, a unique beginning French program developed at the University of Texas. Français interactif helps you explore the French language and culture by following the lives of real UT students who participated in the UT Summer Program in Lyon, France. The UT students will introduce you to their French host families, their French university, and their lives in France. In addition to following the exploits of these UT students, you will also watch videos of native French speakers as well as scenes of day­to­day interactions (e.g., vendors in the market, waiters at a café, children getting ready to go to school, etc.) These video­based materials provide authenticity and immediacy lacking in most commercially produced textbooks.

Date & Location:

This course has no live class meetings, and for the most part can be done on the student's own schedule. There are due dates for all assignments, and the exams must be taken on the assigned dates in a proctored, face-to-face setting. Exam proctoring fees may apply and are not included in the course fee.
