CULP: French Advanced charged Wed 21 Oct 2020   17:00   [More dates...] In progress

CULP: French Basic for Academic Purposes (LAP) Wed 28 Apr 2021   10:00   [More dates...] Not bookable
  • Please be aware that this is the continuation of the Michaelmas/Lent course.*

Using close reading and translation of academic texts from their particular discipline, this weekly class is intended to help research students in the Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences to develop their skills in reading French documents that they have come across or may meet in their research.

The course aims to develop strategies for reading longer texts faster through close analysis, grammatical and stylistic commentary, and translation. For example, literary texts with differing editions, stories with two or more translations into English that need to be compared and evaluated, poems of challenging originality or range of allusion.

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

For more detailed information about the course please visit our website.

CULP: German Advanced Plus charged Thu 15 Oct 2020   16:00 In progress

The concept underpinning this course is one of fostering the learning of higher Advanced German language through listening (mainly films), reading (mainly literature), speaking and writing (both film and literature).

Every session will offer a choice of extracts either from the German* literary canon or from critically acclaimed films, or indeed both, which illustrate the session’s theme. These passages will be analysed by means of listening, reading and communicative exercises and will lead to a discussion about their aesthetic, wider cultural, historical and political implications and relevance today.

More detailed information is available from the Language Centre website.
