Intended learning outcomes

The general aim of the course is that the student should develop a basic communicative ability in French. This is done in a context where the student develops basic knowledge about French-speaking social systems with an emphasis on the legal and market policy preconditions for companies, as well as economic and financial information.

On completion of the course, the student should, in speech and writing, and with such precise language that it can be understood and accepted by a person in the French language area, be able to
- describe the legal and market policy preconditions of companies in France
- describe companies' economic and financial information in their country/language area
- identify and discuss differences and similarities in these conditions and economic information in relation to Swedish conditions.

Course content

The course builds on the initial language course Communicating in French 1. Through the study of documents with primarily social and economic contents, the linguistic communication ability is trained towards more linguistic precision in a context that is relevant for the education as a whole. The course contents are related, among other things, to the previous courses within the programme in the field of economics: Organization, Microeconomics, Commercial and Business Law I, Financial Accounting and Management Control.
