French And Italian | Advanced Grammar and Composition 2
F314 | 2323 | Carr


Pre-requisite: F313.  This is the second half of a two-course sequence devoted
to a comprehensive study of French grammar. In order to stress the written
language, the course makes ample use of translation from English as a means of
improving expressive skills in French.  Five readings drawn from modern short
fiction are studied for their language interest and are used as a basis for
three compositions required during the course of the semester.  Continued
emphasis upon levels of style in written and oral expression and to the
distinctive differences of usage in French and English.

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.

The course will be conducted in French, as are all courses at this level. In
addition to the three compositions, there will be two hour-tests and a final
examination.
