What is French?

French is one of the subjects in Group 2, Language Acquisition. The aims of the study of modern foreign languages are to acquire, firstly, the basis of a means of communication and an understanding of the linguistic, cultural, and social elements of the communities where these languages are spoken. In addition, we aim to develop an appreciation of a variety of literary and non-literary texts, thus giving access to multiple sources of information. Finally, it is hoped that this activity will be life-long and enjoyable.
