Evaluation of the Drop-in Centre, French Centre, University of Calgary, 1979-1980.
A lounge was set up at the University of Calgary where continuing education students could obtain assistance in learning French, in the form of reading materials and French-speaking monitors ready to help them develop conversational and grammar skills. The lounge was endowed with an ambiance designed to relax the student and to create a miniature immersion experience each time it was used. On the whole, the Drop-In Centre is judged a success, but several recommendations for improvement are made, centering around the need for the monitors to be more flexible and responsive to the diverse needs of the students.
