CULP: French Basic for Academic Purposes (LAP) (13 of 15) In progress 15:30 - 17:00 Zoom Video Communication Software

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.

Intercultural Communication workshop new [Places] 17:00 - 19:00 Zoom Video Communication Software

Do you think that people from other cultures are sometimes too direct or too vague? Have you noticed that some people have a different attitude towards deadlines, rules or socialising? Do you struggle to ‘get on’ with some of your fellow students or colleagues and often feel misunderstood?

Culture is about perception. Since different cultural backgrounds create a platform for misunderstandings, it is critical that everyone in Cambridge should gain awareness of the impact of different perspective on their everyday encounters both face-to-face and online in order to promote more effective communication.
