French And Italian | Advanced Grammar and Composition I
F313 | 2411 | 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 developing the skill of error recognition.  Five readings, drawn
from modern French fiction, are studied for their language interest.  The
course will be conducted in French, as are all courses at this level.  There
will be two one hour tests and a final examination.

Required textbooks:
Harper's Grammar of French
Readings and Lessons to Accompany Harper's Grammar of French

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