FREN-293 French for Professional Purposes: Business French
The goal of this course is to teach French business concepts, structures, and practices in a contemporary context. We will discuss various aspects of the French economy (transportation, trade, banks, and the European Union); we will become familiar with particular firms and how they operate; and we will examine everyday French business situations. There will be a focus on active use of business terminology through oral presentations, role playing, summaries of articles, and drafting of business letters. This course prepares students for the examination to earn the Certificat Pratique offered by the Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCIP). This course fulfills the upper-division post-advanced language requirement for the French major. Offered every semester.
