The Open University

Course Information

You’ll further develop your cultural knowledge, and practical language skills in listening, speaking, reading, writing and interacting in a variety of situations – ranging from everyday conversation to putting forward your point of view in a debate. You’ll also consolidate and further develop academic, digital and employability skills in French-speaking contexts. A residential school takes place in France.

The French Studies 2 – Language And Culture Of The French-speaking World module from The Open University further extends your language competence as well as enhancing your cultural knowledge and developing key skills necessary for studying at a higher level. The themes of the module cover different aspects of life in French-speaking countries today.

You’ll work with online materials, and study a variety of texts, and audio and video materials that will develop your reading, speaking, listening and writing skills. The activities provided will also develop your academic, digital, professional and intercultural skills in French-speaking contexts.

Support from your tutor

You’ll have a tutor to help you with the study material and mark and comment on your written and spoken tutor-marked assignments (TMAs). You can also ask your tutor for advice and guidance. This module usually includes a mix of face-to-face and online tutorials. Depending on where you live, the mix will vary. In some places, we may replace face-to-face tuition with more online sessions or telephone conferencing. How and where we hold tutorials will depend on the distribution of students taking the module in your area. Although you’re not obliged to attend any of these, we strongly encourage you to take part, as they will provide you with plenty of opportunities to speak and listen to French.
