This course is designed to introduce students at intermediate level to a range of genres and styles of writing in French, literary and non-literary. The course will review a number of forms and conventions that relate to and/or define these genres, e.g., descriptive, informative, narrative, prescriptive and argumentative. The investigation will lead to the analysis of how important acts of communication and types of discourses appear in these various genres or mutate across genres. This course is very practical in nature and will rely on small group activities. The teaching material used will be in French, and the main medium of instruction will be French.
