An introduction to the critical reading of French literary and non-literary texts; a review of French grammar; training in composition, conversation and listening comprehension. Texts will be drawn from significant short stories, poetry and films. The survey of different literary genres serves also to contrast several views of French culture. Successful completion of FREN 205 prepares students for FREN 207 or 208. Conducted in French. Three hours a week.

This course will be taught synchronously using a range of tools and techniques (including film, collaborative projects, and small group discussions) to support the goals of language acquisition and literary analysis.

Requisite: FREN 103 or three to four years of secondary school French. Fall and spring semesters. Professor de la Carrera.
