Studying Languages at Dickson College gives students an appreciation of diversity, develops their intercultural understanding, provides an insight into different ways of thinking, being and doing, and offers opportunities to engage in dynamic cultural and language activities.

Students reflect on their own cultural place by negotiating meaning and recreating identities as global citizens who function as language users, not language learners.

Students study a cycle of four units when undertaking a two year course of French at Dickson College. The course is available at three levels: Beginning, Continuing and Advanced.

Units on offer:

  • The Individual
  • Society and Community
  • The Changing World
  • Diverse Perspectives
  • Negotiated Study

Assessment consists of four tasks throughout the semester: a research oral (20 %), a responding test (30 %), a written test (30%) and an unprepared oral (20%).
