Mon 21 Jan, Mon 28 Jan, ... Mon 11 Mar 2019

Description

This weekly class is intended to help research students in Divinity to develop their skills in reading French documents they need to deal with in their research. Each session will be divided into two parts:

The first part will consist of grammar, tasks to develop insight into the reading process, help with dealing with complex sentence structures, academic conventions, abbreviations, etc.

The second part will be devoted to the translation of original French texts from different periods and covering a range of topics. Each week you will be asked to attempt a translation into English of a French passage. Students will be encouraged to bring along French texts from their own research to translate.
