Textbook and Materials

MyLab French with Pearson eText for Chez nous: Branché sur le monde francophone 5/e byMary Ellen Scullen 

VERY IMPORTANT: You must access MyLab French via the Pearson widget on the onQ Home Page. If you sign into Pearson independently, your grades will not sync and you will lose your time and efforts!

Helpful Hints on Access MyLab through OnQ 

A good quality USB headset equipped with a microphone (also available at the Queen’s Bookstore)

All other required and recommended materials will be available through OnQ.

Time Commitment

Success in this type of course relies heavily on the students’ personal efforts. Since students will be expected to cover a large amount of material and make use of the numerous resources provided on their own, it is important that they pace themselves appropriately to keep up with the different units. Students who are unable to set aside sufficient time to work on the various online course components on a regular basis will have difficulty completing this course satisfactorily. In addition, students may find that they need to work through elements of each unit a number of times in order to perform at an appropriate level. Students can expect to spend approximately 10-12 hours per week (144 hours per term) in study/practice and online activity for FREN 107.
