[Cross-listed with FREN 222]

French Language and Style I

In-depth grammatical analysis of the simple French sentence and its components, to enable students to understand the language better and to write it more clearly and idiomatically.  Written work will include both structural exercises and short writing assignments.

Recommended texts:
Le Petit Robert de la langue française (any recent edition)
Contrastes. Grammaire du français courant. Denise Rochat, Prentice Hall: 2nd edition, 2009

FREN 123 and at least third-year standing.
FREN 123 (or FREN 225 for students who have taken the entry-level courses for French immersion graduates, FREN 224 & 225, in place of 122 and 123).
As for other courses in French, the prerequisite for FREN 222 is soft, so students lacking it will see a warning screen, but will not be blocked from actually registering.
But take that warning seriously:  do not join FREN 222 without having written the FREN 222/223 Placement Test and earned a score of at least 66 points.

Students specializing in French or Romance Studies may not earn upper-level credit for this course, which is part of the lower-level preparation for senior language courses in the Minor, Major and Honours programmes. They must register for FREN 222, an alternate code for the same course, graded to the same standards.
