New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2022

FREN 4 Afro/Black Paris Through Language-Intensive French for Beginners

French 4 is an intensive beginning French course designed to develop real-world, on-demand proficiency for students of the Afro/Black Paris FSP with little or no prior knowledge of the French language. The course stresses the features of French needed by all learners for everyday communication and promotes speaking, listening, reading, and writing. During this intensive session, you will develop your knowledge of African-descended French people and diversity in mainland France while acquiring a broader understanding of French culture and of the remnants of colonial France.


The class is conducted entirely in French and uses open-ended, interactive activities and experiential learning activities such as field trips to engage students in critical thinking as well as practicing language skills and exploring the cultural richness and diversity of the French-speaking world.

French 4 is equivalent to FREN-001. It is not open to students who have received credit for FREN 001.

Successful completion of French 4 will qualify you to continue to French 2. Please visit the Department of French and Italian’s website for more information about French language courses.
