Course Description

Designed for highly motivated students, French 604 is a four-skills language course in which you will learn about French-speaking cultures around the world, as well as develop the ability to understand, speak, read, and write French. This class is accelerated and covers in one semester the first two beginning French courses (506 and 507) at The University of Texas at Austin. Since a great deal of the material must be learned in one semester, this course is rigorous and may occasionally seem overwhelming. However, instructors are readily available to assist all students.

 

Course Requirements

COMPARABLE TO FR 506 AND 507. FR 604 AND 506 MAY NOT BOTH BE COUNTED; ONLY 1 OF THE FOLLOWING MAY BE COUNTED: FR 604, 507, 508K.

Emphasis is placed on diversifying vocabulary, mastering a wider range of grammatical structures, increasing fluency, and developing appropriate rhetorical strategies for essay writing in French.
