French and Italian | Advanced Grammar
F313 | 7252 | Vantine, Peter James


This course is the first half of the grammar and composition sequence
F313-314. The course is designed to review major grammar points
learned previously while also expanding studentsí understanding of
more advanced aspects of French grammar in order to strengthen their
skills in oral and written comprehension and expression. It is
intended to prepare students for more advanced culture and literature
courses at the F300 and 400 levels that are reading-intensive and
require extensive writing.

We will use a grammar manual and workbook, supplemented by materials
from French and Francophone culture such as newspaper articles, short
literary works or excerpts, and film. Grades will be based on daily
preparation and participation, as well as a combination of quizzes,
tests, and writing exercises. Prerequisite is F250.
