Subject Matter

French is still one of the most important international languages today. Thanks to the colonial expansion of France, the language is spoken on all continents in a community comprising 50 states, all with a special connection to the French language.

The course focuses on the language and literature of France and the French-speaking world. It outlines the historical development of the French language and its current status as a language system. It studies the literature of the French-speaking world and, as part of cultural studies, teaches knowledge of the historically shaped, socio-cultural reality in Francophone countries.
