French Composition and Grammar Review

French 300 is a grammar review and composition course, required of all French majors and minors. The objective of the course is to help you to express your thoughts clearly in essentially correct, and, we hope, reasonably elegant, French prose. A review of structures is an indispensable tool to help you achieve this objective and should also improve your spoken French. In-class activities focus on accuracy, vocabulary development and writing skills. Assignments include grammar exercises, short written texts and several longer compositions, with re-writes.

Text: Contrastes, 2nd edition, with workbook.

Requisites: Prerequisite, FREN 204 or 402. Recommended preparation, FREN 255260, or 262.
