Student Foreign Language Projects at RUC. ROLIG papir 42.
Phillipson, Robert, Ed.; Jakobsen, Karen Sonne, Ed.
The purpose of this report is to present work done in the language module projects of the English and German degrees at Roskilde University Center (Denmark). Project work is the essential structuring ingredient of foreign language degrees at the Center. The collection of papers included in this issue attempts to provide information on what has been done in the past at Roskilde University Center. Some students of English and German who have recently completed projects were invited to describe their project work in the form of an article. Each of the articles in this publication gives an in-depth description of what methods were used. The introductory article describes the regulations under which the center operates, and summarizes other projects, so as to present a broader picture of the kinds of topics that have appealed to students. The first article gives an account of the role of schooling in the revival of Irish (Annette Storgaard Jorgensen). The second article, in Danish, describes a study of four female learners of German (Merete Andersen, Esther Gamborg). The third article, "Contra-Reagan," is a discourse analysis of a televised speech of Ronald Reagan's (Mikael Klintorp). (JL)
