French: Spoken Contemporary

This course may lead French people to ask, “Excuse me, are you French?” If you are interested in improving your fluency, this course fine-tunes your reading comprehension and builds your knowledge of grammar and vocabulary. Gain the confidence necessary to express opinions and complex ideas, expand idiomatic knowledge, and learn to hold your own in discussions about a wide variety of topics. Authentic material from current newspapers and magazines is used. Classes are conducted almost entirely in French. Course content changes every semester, so this course may be taken more than once.

Students are strongly encouraged to register by Wednesday, January 30, 2019 to help ensure a seat in the class. Please contact the Department of Foreign Languages at sps.foreignlanguages@nyu.edu with any questions, or call 212-998-7150 to register.
