The University of Maine at Fort Kent will be offering two intense week-long language courses entitled French Review I and French Review II. The instructor for the courses, which will be held on the university campus, is Lise Pelletier.
French Review I will be offered July 18 through July 22.
Participants will improve their communication skills and grammar skills and gain a better understanding of the French language, including pronunciation. They will also develop an increased understanding of Francophone literature.
French Review II will be offered July 25 through July 29.
The advanced students are expected to communicate primarily in the French language. They will give short oral presentations, including literature reviews.
The cooperative learning environment courses will meet for the five days from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Participants will use computer software, films, readings and discussion of literature as well as field trips to selected locations in the community.
"Although primarily intended for teachers, the courses will be of interest to parents and to others with at least an understanding of the French language." said Donald Eno, academic outreach coordinator.
Both three credit hour courses may count towards recertification requirements or continuing education credits for teachers. Teachers should check with their school department for information.
For more information on the course, contact Eno at 834-7835.
