Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions


In this module, knowledge of French as a foreign language will be further developed, enabling students to function/persuade/express themselves in French independently and confidently in familiar situations, e.g. in the classroom, at work, in free time and with the family, on topics of general interest when standard French is spoken. Students expand their cultural knowledge of a great variety of current topics in French life. They increase their vocabulary as well as consolidate and deepen the French grammar focused on thus far.

Learning Outcome

The module is aimed at level "B1 Independent Language Use" of the CEFR. Students acquire knowledge of French as a foreign language at the standard language level with a focus on intercultural, cultural and academic aspects. Following completion of this module, students can communicate confidently in familiar situations encountered at school or work, in free-time activities or while travelling in French-speaking countries. They can understand the essential content of simple, authentic texts on every-day topics and can take part in discussions on familiar topics. Students are capable of describing personal experiences and impressions in writing in longer texts.
