JUNIOR SOPHISTER REQUIREMENTS
N.B. Students are reminded that they will be required to choose the
subject that they intend to take in the Senior Sophister year by the
end of the last day of Michaelmas term of the JS year. Prospective
candidates for Moderatorship Part 1 (French as minor subject) are
also reminded that they must have fulfilled the requirement of two
months' residence in a French-speaking country before the
examination. ------------------- In terms of student input, the requirements for Junior Sophister
students in TSM French are divided between LANGUAGE modules and
optional coursework modules (hereafter abbreviated to OPTIONS). 1. LANGUAGE: All students are required to attend language classes, and
submit regular written work. Language teaching in the JS year takes up
three hours weekly across both semesters. These hours are in turn
divided into two modules, each focused on different language skills:
A) Written Language . FR3005 . 10 ECTS Aims: Taught by full-time members of staff, this module aims to
develop students' skills in (a) translation from French to English,
and (b) résumé, understood as both a receptive skill, requiring
sound comprehension of texts written in French, and a productive
skill, requiring students to produce an accurate contraction in
correct French of a text written in French. Learning Outcomes:
On successful completion of this module, students should be able to: . Translate a French literary or journalistic text into idiomatic
English, retaining a high level of equivalence with the
original;
. Write in correct French a résumé of a text on an intellectually
challenging topic. Structure: One hour weekly in both Michaelmas Term and Hilary
Term, with classes alternating between translation and résumé. Prescribed Books:
iMary Wood, Thème anglais, filière classique, PUF, 1995
iPol Gaillard et Claude Launay, Le Résumé de texte, Hatier, 1998.
B) Oral and Written Language Skills . FR3006 . 10 ECTS
Aims: Taught by lecteurs/lectrices, this module aims to develop students'
skills in (a) production of spoken French, and (b) essay writing in French.
Contemporary social and political issues will provide an important source
of topics for both the oral and written French components. Teaching in the
techniques of essay writing component will be included. Learning Outcomes: On successful completion of this module, students should be able to: . Communicate clearly and effectively, orally and in writing in
French, in a formal, academic context, on contemporary social
and political issues;
. Organise and present ideas in French fluently, correctly and
coherently, within the framework of a structured and reasoned
oral argument, on an intellectually challenging topic and with
only brief notes;
. Mobilise their knowledge of French as one of the strategies and
skills needed for further intellectual development and
independent, life-long learning. Structure: Two hours weekly in both Michaelmas Term and Hilary Term, with
one hour focused on spoken French and the other on essay writing. N.B. The following reference books, used in preceding years, will
continue to be required for Junior Sophister Language classes: Le Petit Robert or Le Micro Robert
Jacqueline Ollivier, Grammaire française (Québec: Editions Études
vivantes, 1993)
Bescherelle: La Conjugaison pour tous (Paris: Hatier,1997)

2. OPTIONS: All students, whether taking Moderatorship Part 1 or
Moderatorship Part 2 in French, select two options, one in each of the
Michaelmas and Hilary terms. In place of one (and only one) of these two options, students may
select one of the options in theoretical and applied linguistics
offered by the Centre for Language and Communication Studies. The
rules governing courses taken in the CLCS will be published by the
CLCS, and may differ in some particulars from regulations in force in
the French Department. All students submit an assessment exercise (which MUST BE WORD-
PROCESSED) in respect of each option taken within the French
Department (see CLCS regulations for CLCS courses). Except where
