Beyond A-Level in the Teaching of French.
Sanders, Carol, Ed.
The papers in this volume discuss practical approaches to some of the current problems of degree-level language teaching. Section one discusses non-literary registers in advanced language teaching including the use of texts in teaching, suggestions for a course in practical sociolinguistics, and exercises for advancing from paraphrase to an awareness of different language registers. Section two, focusing on new horizons in oral work, reviews interpreting as an oral exercise in oral fluency, group stimulation exercises in advanced language teaching, and examinations for testing French language proficiency. Section three presents course materials for degree work, reports on the revision of a course book in answer to the needs of language students, and discusses an integrated course in oral and written French. Section four reviews developments in self-instruction including using a computer to supplement classroom instruction and self-instructional materials in the language laboratory. The appendices include a report on a questionnaire on French language teaching, and a list of conference sessions and participants. (Author/JK)
