In this workshop we will practise reading techniques that will support you in understanding and interpreting your key texts. The beginning of Der Kleine Herr Friedemann will be the text we practise with, but it is not necessary to have read this in advance.

The strategies will help build your reading towards extracting key points/moments from a text for commentary, and reading for translation.

We'll break reading down into manageable steps and look at how you can develop your technique for both the personal stage that you feel you have reached with your reading and for the text that you have in hand. The session is entirely flexible, depending on what you would like to discuss and to work on.

Come to this session if you would like to explore developing your personal method for practising listening to French, particularly for progressing with challenging audio-visual clips from documentaries and films. Different listening strategies work for different people, and improvement is all about diversifying your own practice. We will try out practical strategies and evaluate their helpfulness against the questions that you are asked in the FRAV exam.

Please note this workshop will take place in LB 11 on the Sidgwick site.

Bring: a typical text in your target language that you need to read.

This one-off session is for learner readers of any languages.

Do you need to diversify your strategies for academic reading in your target language? Maybe for areas such as reading with speed or identifying which are significant moments in a text and which aren't? Come and evaluate your method, then experiment with practical steps for all kinds of texts.

This is a change of concept: of course we will consider your target language, but giving greater emphasis to how you read and learning strategies to make it manageable and satisfying. Learners at all levels welcome.
