French And Italian | Advanced Grammar and Composition I
F313 | 2513 | Prof. Carr


French F313 is the first half of a two-course sequence devoted to a comprehensive
study of French grammar. The course makes ample use of translation from English
as a means of acquiring expressive skills in French. Along with the formal
study of grammar and of levels of style, stress will be given to the differences
between English and French expressions of particular phenomena. Five readings,
drawn from modern French fiction, are studied for their language interest.

Required textbooks:

Harper's Grammar of French
Readings and Lessons to Accompany Harper's Grammar ofFrench

Students should have access to a major French dictionary. A good English-French
dictionary will also be useful.

The course will be conducted in French, as are all courses at this level. There
will be two hour- tests and a final examination.

Prerequisite: FRIT F250, F255, F265, or F269.
