Learning outcomes:
The courses French 1 and 2 are based on each other. In the course of the two
modules, students will improve their professional French so that they advance from
the desired entry level B1 to level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for
Languages.
Based on a common level of knowledge and motivation
amongst the students, the main objective of the language course is to refresh and develop
existing French skills, as well as to reduce barriers to learning and negative
attitudes towards language learning while strengthening confidence in one´s own
foreign language competence. Subjects and situations that are relevant for the later professional
career will be used to impart skills and knowledge that will enable students
to communicate orally and in writing with colleagues and business partners in
francophone countries.
To do so, all four skills (speaking, listening comprehension,
reading and writing) will be trained equally using, in part, multimedia
learning tools. Content development will be supported by the repetition of a
basic vocabulary and the relevant grammatical structures, also in
self-study.
The course takes a communicative and pragmatic approach that particularly promotes
communicative competence in job-relevant situations through the
use of role playing and situational dialogues. This also includes
intercultural aspects that raise the students´ awareness of cultural
differences and enable them to assert themselves in specific situations.
