FRN 201 - Intermediate French I, 4 credit hours


Notes: Required of all French majors

Prerequisite(s): FRN 102  or equivalent. FRN 201 is an appropriate entry point for most students with more than two years of solid high school French.
French 201 is foremost a review of some of the basic grammar items covered in a first-year French University class (101 and 102) with an emphasis on exceptions to rules and new vocabulary items to improve conversation skills. Most high school students who have studied the language for 3 years or more can enter this specific level of the (language during their freshmen year in University. Conversation, reading and writing skills are taught in order for students to improve their knowledge and usage of the language. New students should realize that 3 to 4 year high school experience prepare them well for the level of French used in the classroom. French 201 reviews and improves usage of regular verbs (like “parler” “finir” “repondre”) and some of the irregular verbs (to be, to have, to go, etc.,). Adjectives, articles, basic question patterns, and numbers form also the core of the review and improvement taught in the class. A typical 201 level class helps students to go back into the language after their summer break.
