Poesies et Chansons Francaises: Base pour l'Etude de la Langue et de la Civilisation (French Poetry and Songs: A Basis for the Study of Language and Culture).
Elliott, Jacqueline C.
The French cultural heritage is filled with tales, songs, and poems that reflect the culture, civilization and language of France. This paper suggests using these cultural products as instructional materials in French language classes for second language learners. Some of these materials are already in use in French schools, and it is suggested that they could serve as a cultural link between French and American students. Materials of this sort have both linguistic and cultural advantages. Students can learn language structure and use and vocabulary through the use of appealing materials, and the insights that these materials provide into French culture could serve as a basis for discussions or research. The suggested method is outlined, and specific examples in the form of songs and poetry are given. (Author/CLK)
