This project is specifically designed to provide not only a final exam grade in listening, speaking, reading and writing but also an authentic portfolio sample of your expertise in French. You are encouraged to put significant effort into this project so that you can use this as a demonstration of your abilities for future study and job opportunities.

Special note about use of online translation/dictionary resources: It is expected that you may need to check an online dictionary occasionally to find an appropriate word for completing various aspects of this task. You are permitted to look up individual words: be cautious when choosing which of the results to use in your task: consider part of speech, context, etc.

However, you are expressly forbidden to insert phrases or sentences into any translation device (or ask them of any advanced/fluent/native French speaker).
