10 Credits AUTUMN

Pre-requisites: MLT261, or A-level French + 1 year of study or stay abroad, or equivalent CEF B2 proficiency in the language.

Aims/Description: The aims are to enable students to work independently and collaboratively in French; to foster the acquisition of subject-specific terminology and discourse in French; to encourage interaction with native speakers of French, by e-mail or face-to-face, Students will be expected to investigate an agreed topic closely related to their main course of study. This will entail devising a project proposal and plan, gathering information from a range of written and spoken sources (normally including French native-speakers), and synthesing this to form the basis of a formal, written report and a structured oral presentation. On completion, students should be able to: collaborate successfully with native-speakers of French: use international e-mail links to do so where appropriate; analyse information, distinguishing fact from opinion and main ideas from supporting detail; and present findings in speech and writing using formal register and - where appropriate - subject-specific language.  https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/mltc/lfa/courses/french/project_higher_advanced
