Syllabus
Prerequisites: Students must have B1 French language proficiency of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR).
Target skills and knowledge: The main objective of the course is to master B1 French language skills of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), by studying French grammar and developing various skills: writing CVs and covering letters where the students present themselves and the educational and professional paths followed, and for interacting in simulated job interviews in the classroom; listen, read, translate, discuss French texts (written, oral, multimedia) related to a specific theme but also cross-disciplinary with the various degree programs (to be agreed on with the students); structuring academic speeches written and oral as preparation for the final assessment.
Examination methods: The final assessment consists of a propaedeutic written exam centered on grammar points and of an oral examination to be held in French based on the program of the course.
Assessment criteria: The assessment of the student's progress will be based on the acquisition of B2 French language skills of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) and French oral expression based on the program of the course.
Course unit contents: Acquisition of language skills of B2 level of European reference framework. Advanced study of French grammar. Writing CVs and covering letters to present themselves and the educational and professional paths followed and to interact in simulated job interviews in the classroom. Listening, reading, translation, discussion of texts in French (written, oral, multimedia) regarding a specific theme but transverse to the various degree programs (to be agreed with the students). Structuring of written and oral academic speeches as a preparation for the final assessment.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: The institutional course of the teacher, delivered through face-to-face teaching (but also practice and other activities), is joined by French speaking exercises run by the lectors. The aim is to ensure a wide and structured preparation.
It is strongly recommended to attend regularly both classroom lessons and the lectors’ courses, but also to use the Language Lab, in self-learning, or under the guidance of the lectors.
Additional notes about suggested reading: On the claweb site (http://claweb.cla.unipd.it/francese/) you will find learning resources for the French language, including the online course "Dynamo{ t }s - français pour débutants" (from beginner to level B1 of the European reference framework).
Other materials to be studied or consulted will be recommended by the teacher on the Moodle platform SPGI (https://elearning.unipd.it/spgi/), in the section dedicated to the current "Advanced French Language" course.
