Aims/Description: This module involves independent study by the student with guidance from the tutor. The research will be informed by contact with the French speakers. The minimum period of residence abroad will be three weeks in total, however, when possible a longer period will be recommended. Students will be expected to communicate at an academic or professional level during that time. The period of residence may involve work placements, voluntary work, intensive language courses, etc. The project should be a succinct and well argued narrative relevant to the linguistic and/or cultural aspects of their degree. Audiovisual materials may be included in the project.
