Teaching of Languages to Migrant Workers . (Toulouse, France).
Buscail, X.; And Others
With the cooperation of the Council of Europe, CREPT (tr. Regional Center for the Study and Promotion of Travel) conducted an experimental training course for migrant workers at Toulouse, France. Aim of the course was to bring trainees from the stage of attaining literacy to that of entering the Centre for Vocational Training for Adults (FPA). In 1972, 3 groups of 15 trainees took the 14-week residential course. Upon course completion, trainees took the FPA entrance examination. Subjects covered were mathematics, spoken and written French, and technology. Two weekly tests on the subject matter taught were administered. During the course, a system of reciprocal observation was introduced to determine the type of intervention which encouraged verbal exchanges among participants. Fourteen of the 45 trainees applied for vocational training. (NQ)
