Course Description

Montreal day


This course completes the introductory sequence on “French Today” and consolidates skills attained in FRE 121, FRE 122 and FRE 221 or the equivalent. Advanced reading, writing and speaking skills are developed through study of increasingly sophisticated cultural and literary topics related to the contemporary Francophone world. The focus of this course is on Francophone cultures of North America—most particularly Haiti and Quebec and their cross-cultural exchanges. Grammar is incorporated through individual study and at-home exercises, the reading of texts and viewing of film in French, in-class discussion, and the writing of creative texts. While abroad, students will interact in a variety of situations with native speakers of French, examining their own cultural lenses and coming to a greater understanding of the cultural perspectives of Francophone communities in North America.
  • Grades count toward an Elon GPA.

  • Study abroad courses may not be taken on an audit or pass/fail basis, regardless of the host institution's policy.

Students previously enrolled in FRE 222 at Elon University are also eligible to travel with the FRE 222 TE cohort to Montreal and Quebec. They may apply through this application and discuss with Dr. Choplin preparation for the travel and options for undergraduate research credit.?

Activity Level: Easy Going

Activity levels are rated to fit into one of four categories: easy going, moderate, challenging and demanding. This program is rated as easy going, which means you should be comfortable with some walking throughout the day. Expect to get on and off of a coach, and be ready to stroll through cities and to stand for a few hours when you’re learning in museums.
