Once upon a time, there were many Flamencas. All of them had a kernel of narratio fabulosa truth in common.
Welcome to this year’s updated version of the revision guide for one of the courses that I coordinate, beginners’ French. The original post is at UBC Blogs > FREN 101 & 102 Resources > Révisions : FREN 101. Its ancestor is at that course’s old site and first appeared there in 2014; I made a new site for this year as part of redesigning the course. Of course, the main actual exam revision guidance and general exam season guidance haven’t changed since then, nor indeed have they since predecessors that circulated orally; I’d say the same things in the last class every term in every language, literature, and culture course I’ve ever taught, back to 2001. (Does such guidance ever change? The classic complaint and old lament of traditional knowledge dismissed as non-knowledge, until it is stolen for profit by others and translated into authoritative publication and official sanction.)
