The INJEP Experience: New Ideas for Technical and Business French Educators.
Sakalauskas, Sandy; Jumbou, Jacky
Given the need for business people with specialized language skills, this paper first reviews the adequacy of American language classrooms for teaching technical and business French and then reports on one French organization as a resource for educators. L'Institut National de la Jeunesse et de l'Education Populaire (INJEP) promotes the discovery of French culture, including scientific and technical culture, that educators should learn about. INJEP meets two social needs by promoting seminars on teaching methods to French educators and by promoting a knowledge of French culture to foreigners. As part of the second initiative, INJEP regularly offers an international program on scientific, technical, and business-related French culture. Activities of the Culture Scientifique, Technique et Industrielle are described. Contains 14 references. (LB)
