French 101: Advanced Expository Writing: Techniques of Argumentation

French 101 will teach students to write strong argumentative essays in French while discovering the UNESCO French and Francophone Intangible Cultural Heritage. We will carefully read and study texts that will help students develop their writing skills and effectively communicate their ideas. In that aim,  they will learn how to write a well-structured introduction in French, how to defend their position while taking into account counter-arguments, and how to effectively conclude their essays. Students will develop their vocabulary, and learn how to use French expressions to introduce examples, causes and consequences, comparisons, and concessions.
