FREN 102: Beginning French II: FREN 102


Franophone Country FlagsThis LibraryGuide was created in Spring 2018 for students in the FREN 102 course taught by Professor Hantho. The resources on this guide are intended to provide help finding credible sources for the Travel Log final project. Visit the other tabs on this guide for additional information.

Travel Log Project

The final project requires you to find a variety of types of information as you prepare your fictional travel diary. These include:

  • Important facts about the region or country, including geography and population,
  • a discussion of places you visited, including one place of historical significance,
  • descriptions of culture and family life,
  • and discussions of the food you ate, where you stayed, and how you traveled.

You need to include a Works Cited list with at least three sources, which shouldn't all be websites.

The "Find Sources" tab on this LibraryGuide offers recommendations of helpful sources.

Finding Books

Enter two or three keywords in the search box. You may need to try different combinations of words to find exactly what you're looking for. To limit your search to books, check the box next to "Books/eBooks" in the "Material Type" panel.
