  • Overview

    Description
    The module sets the level B1.2 from the Common European framework of Reference (CEFR) as its minimum exit level. Throughout the semester, students will continue to increase their competence and fluency in French. They will develop competences that will enable them to take ownership of their language learning and language use. They will acquire the knowledge and skills required to secure a job/work placement at home or abroad. They will gain an understanding of the international labour market (in the private, public or voluntary sector), with regards to professions in their own domain, and to understand cultural differences between French-speaking countries and Ireland in the area of employment and recruitment. 

    Learning Outcomes
    1. Apply for a job/work placement through French (e.g. understand the recruitment process in French speaking countries, produce a Curriculum Vitae and a letter of application/motivation, take part in a job interview)
    2. Understand standard written and spoken language (live or broadcast), on topics related to professions, work placements and job applications
    3. Demonstrate a sufficient range of written and spoken language to talk about competencies, past academic or professional experiences, and personal goals (e.g. a good range of vocabulary for matters connected to his/her academic and professional goals, a degree of grammatical control that ensure that mistakes do not lead to misunderstanding, etc.)
    4. Express himself/herself spontaneously, clearly and politely in a register appropriate to formal situations such as job interviews
    5. Make effective use of digital resources and tools for communication purposes (interaction and production)
    6. Reflect on his/her learning experience and outcomes
