This course is designed for high school students who want to improve their knowledge of French with a view to the examination, which marks the end of their school education. Morning lessons are devoted to grammatical and functional aims and to "exposés" during which each student presents a work of a French author he has chosen. Afternoon lessons are reserved for résumé techniques and text analysis. This is also part of the next day's work to be corrected and analysed by the teacher. The last day is set aside for a test in examination conditions. 1 to 2 hours per day after lessons for preparation or exercises. All text material used in lessons deals with French literature and civilisation.
