FRNL11-101: French Language and Culture


French has a long history as an international language in literature and science. It is the official language of over twenty countries and many international organisations, including the United Nations, the European Union and the World Trade Organisation. 
Learning French will expand your cultural awareness, your ability to communicate effectively across cultural borders, and it will also improve your global career opportunities.  The subject is designed for students with no previous knowledge of the French language. Using a content and language integrated approach, French Language and Culture aims to enhance your awareness and understanding of French speaking societies and cultures, and to develop basic communicative proficiency in the French language.
