CULP: French for Academic Purposes (LAP)

French for Academic Purposes (LAP) for Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences Researchers

One 90 minute lesson weekly.

These courses run for three terms (Mich/Lent/Easter). To register, please go to the Language Centre Enrolment page.

This weekly class is intended to help students in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences to develop their skills in reading French documents that they may meet in their research.

Classes will be conducted in English, but there will be many opportunities to use French and practise reading aloud.

Levels to be offered this year: Basic, Intermediate 1 and Intermediate 2. Basic level classes start from scratch, while Intermediate level classes assume increasing familiarity with French.

Students who complete a course are able to read and translate complex texts at the respective levels, as well as scan research material in order to assess its suitability.
