Course Description

This course is intended to further enrich your communicative skills in French. Our primary aims this year are: 1) to deepen your understanding of vocabulary and grammar already learnt, 2) to help you become even more independent in your language studies, 3) to give you a general introduction to French culture and history.

Effective Ways of Doing Information Research

Four key steps of the research process: Get Organized; Gather Information; Use the Information; and Reflect.

Once you get yourself organized, you may start with the Research section of the OWHL.

As always, we are more than happy to help you and work with you if you simply stop by the OWH Library.
