Bridging High School and College Language Classes through the Multicultural Approach: The Case of Francophone Africa.
Mosadomi, Tola
Mid-Atlantic Journal of Foreign Language Pedagogy, v1 p13-18 Spr 1993
The multicultural approach to French language teaching and learning brings richer and more culturally diverse elements into the classroom and makes learning more enjoyable. While it improves people's understanding of other cultures, it is also a faster and more economic way to learn about them. The gap between foreign language education in high schools and colleges or universities must be narrowed until it becomes completely bridged; a multicultural approach can do this and more. Knowledge of the French language should not be limited to the "mother nation" only but should include the French Caribbean, French Canada, the Francophone of South-East Asia, French-speaking Europe and Africa, and Louisiana.
