Studies in French will give students the opportunity to study French literature, culture, history and linguistics and give you a solid grounding in French language. It enables students to become proficient enough in French to live and work effectively in a French-speaking environment. French courses at Manchester give students a firm grounding in French language and the chance to explore in depth French culture, linguistics, film, art, history and literature. They equip students with the skills needed to thrive in French-speaking environments. Throughout the course students are trained in modern spoken and written French by following a high-level core language course. From Year One, students discover how the language really works by learning about its morphology, syntax, phonology and phonetics. Students thoroughly develop their French language skills by working with a variety of oral and written French texts and engaging in discussions in French (most of this language instruction takes place in French and is predominantly taught by native speakers). Core language courses at all levels of study are complemented by a variety of other Francophone-related topic areas and by a period spent in a French-speaking country, such as at our popular university exchange partners in Brussels, Geneva, Martinique, La Réunion and Quebec. Our students also teach English in schools across the world as part of the British Council's assistantship scheme, and many complete work placements across Europe, Africa and North America. Independent, monitored self-study reinforces students' knowledge of grammar and vocabulary. Students may also take a set of broad-based content courses that provide essential grounding in key areas of French and Francophone culture (especially visual studies), society, linguistics, history and literature.
