Learning French through Ethnolinguistic Activities and Individual Support
Lafond, Celia; Bovey, Nadia Spang, Paper presented at the 2013 EUROCALL Conference (√Čvora, Portugal, Sep 11-14, 2013)
For the last six years, the university has been offering a Tutorial Programme for learning French, combining intensive courses and highly individualised learning activities. The programme is based on an ethnolinguistic approach and it is continuously monitored. It aims at rapid progress through contact with the local population, real-life experience in the urban environment and confrontation to cultural differences. The 6-week programme, highly regarded by the attendees who enjoy learning French "in situ," also grants students 6 ECTS, if all requirements are met. It is facilitated by a supporting team of tutors and an online learning environment allowing for distance pedagogical interaction. The target audience includes actual or to-be university students and immigrants in professional integration (20-40y).
