Description of module content:

In this module, you will be introduced to, discuss and practise strategies for business negotiation in French, with particular reference to the language structures and vocabulary used in this type of context. You will research and synthesize business information and prepare a negotiation scenario in a context of your choice (in agreement with your lecturer).

You will also have practice in the interpreting of short scenarios from English into French and French into English in negotiation role-plays which will help you develop a systematic approach to some of the linguistic structures used in situated business contexts.

All these steps lead to the negotiation oral based on the prepared scenario and played the student and the tutor.

Grammatical revisions will be based on students' needs with the view to broaden exposure to more
complex grammar structures.

Learning Outcomes for module:

LO1: synthesise information from a variety of authentic French business and professional sources
LO2: present complex ideas and arguments and discuss them fluently in French
LO3: apply French language skills in a mock business or professional negotiation
