THE DEPARTMENT OF FRENCH


ABOUT US


The Department of French was started in 1959 on a part-time basis in order to provide students with the basic knowledge of a foreign language. It became full time in 1968 to keep in pace with the growing demand for French as a second language. At first, emphasis was given to developing written skills of the students and then with the onset of autonomy in 1999, the Department started focusing on complete language skills - both oral and written. Today, it has a strength of nearly 250 students under the guidance of 2 staff members.

Since 2008-09, the Department opened its doors to teach the Fundamentals of French under Part IV for second language Tamil students. From 2011-12, French for DELF is offered as a skill based course for 2nd UG students. The Department also collaborates with MCA and other PG departments offering French as a soft skill.

Since 2009-10, the Department has been bringing out a journal based on written assignments done by students in the course of a given academic year. The journal entitled Les Chimères Littéraires, is greatly appreciated by other colleges and the Institut Français, which is the French Language Section of the Embassy of France in India.
