Main themes
A wide range of written texts and multimedia documents are used as a prompt for receptive and productive activities in both speech and writing. The focus is on vocabulary extension, grammatical accuracy and coherent argumentation. Special attention is devoted to intercultural communication. Lexical, grammatical and discursive differences between the target language and French are highlighted and practised through translation exercises.
Content
Vocabulary extension with particular focus on its appropriate use in context (collocations, register).
Discursive and rhetorical techniques, typical of the target language.
Lexical and structural properties of written vs spoken discourse in the target language.
Teaching methods
The lecturing part of the course will focus on a systematic broadening of the lexical proficiency, the development of stylistic  and grammatical adequacy, use of different forms of discourse and the quality of translation.
The exercise part of the course will especially focus on productive oral and written proficiency (correct pronunciation, adequate use of the code, variety in register, vocabulary and fluency in communication).
