During the 1972-73 academic year, an adaptation class for foreign pupils was conducted at the "Anatole France" Co-Educational School in Vitry, France. The class was composed of children between the ages of 6 and 10 years, mainly of Portuguese nationality. Pupils spent 27 hours per week in class. The "Frere Jacques" method, devised by the Office for the Study of Languages and Civilisations (BELC), was used to teach the pupils French. Pupils were also taught their mother tongue. This report contains: (1) information supplied to the Secretariat by the "Anatole France" Co-Educational School and (2) a psychologist's report on an experiment carried out in this class. Topics covered are: constitution of the class, attendance, social situation, level of pupils on arrival, classroom teaching, teaching methods, liaison with the family milieu, class atmosphere, student attitudes, and results of the psychological examination (Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children) given to the pupils.
