Focusing on grammar and grammatical analysis, and the process of writing. Instruction in class, in lab and online.


Ce cours se concentre sur la structure de la langue française. Il est divisé en deux parties : la première se penche sur l’enseignement de la grammaire et sur des exercices de mise en pratique, et la deuxième est consacrée à l’expression écrite, plus particulièrement le processus d’écriture sous différentes formes.

Les étudiants feront des exercices préparatoires pour chaque heure de grammaire et de la lecture pour la partie « atelier d’écriture ». Cette approche nécessitera aussi un travail en équipe, fait majoritairement asynchrone où il faudra participer à des exercices pratiques de rédaction.


  • 3 tests de grammaire 45%
  • Compositions (en classe et à la maison) 30%
  • Composition finale (en classe) 20%
  • Participation 5%


This is a blended course: part of the class is face-to-face, part is asynchronous, online.

Department Undergraduate Notes:

Code of Academic Honesty
The Department of French applies the university's policy and procedures governing matters of academic dishonesty in all French courses. Students registered in French courses are expected to respect the standards laid out in SFU's Code of Academic Honesty, published at the university website http://www.sfu.ca/policies/teaching/t10-02.htm. Evidence of any of the various forms of Academic Disonesty described in this policy document (section 3.0) will be dealt with accordingly to the specified Procedure and Penalties (section 5.0). Students should therefore read this policy document carefully.

Registrar Notes:


SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating.  Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community.  Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html


Teaching at SFU in spring 2022 will involve primarily in-person instruction, with safety plans in place.  Some courses will still be offered through remote methods, and if so, this will be clearly identified in the schedule of classes.  You will also know at enrollment whether remote course components will be “live” (synchronous) or at your own pace (asynchronous).

Enrolling in a course acknowledges that you are able to attend in whatever format is required.  You should not enroll in a course that is in-person if you are not able to return to campus, and should be aware that remote study may entail different modes of learning, interaction with your instructor, and ways of getting feedback on your work than may be the case for in-person classes.

Students with hidden or visible disabilities who may need class or exam accommodations, including in the context of remote learning, are advised to register with the SFU Centre for Accessible Learning (caladmin@sfu.ca or 778-782-3112) as early as possible in order to prepare for the spring 2022 term.
