Description

CALENDAR DESCRIPTION:

Designed to further develop ability in oral expression. Instruction in class and in lab. Students with native or near-native proficiency are not allowed to take this course and must contact the instructor for evaluation or exemption prior to enrolment.

COURSE DETAILS:

Ce cours est réservé aux étudiants non francophones qui ont déjà une bonne compétence orale en français (l'équivalent d'au moins quatre semestres d'étude de la langue) et qui désirent perfectionner leur expression orale par des activités de discussions et de réflexion en petits groupes sur des sujets divers reliés au monde francophone.
Durant les deux rencontres hebdomadaires, les étudiants discuteront d’articles et de films, participeront à des projets de groupes, l’un de ces projets étant la création de balados (podcast), et prépareront des exposés. Une partie du cours repose donc sur l’implication régulière des étudiants, sur leur participation active et leur préparation aux activités planifiées pour chaque semaine. La lecture des documents, la préparation et la présence en classe sont des conditions importantes au bon déroulement du cours.

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:

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: YOUR WORK, YOUR SUCCESS

SFU’s Academic Integrity website 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
