British Council, London (England). English-Teaching Information Centre.
This profile in outline form of the English language teaching situation in France discusses the role of English within French society and within the educational system. It is noted that English is little used as a medium of communication, although it is the most widely studied language in the educational system. The use of English as medium of instruction on the primary, secondary and university levels and the role of literature, examinations, the syllabus and inspection system are discussed. The composition of the teaching cadre is also dealt with as well as the teacher training system, professional organizations, teaching materials, English outside the educational system and British and American support. A general statement on the status of English vis-a-vis French and a bibliography complete the profile. (AMH)
