Understanding L2 French Teaching Strategies in a Non-Target Language Classroom Context
Sun, Peijian; Yuan, Rui; Teng, Lin
Journal of Education for Teaching: International Research and Pedagogy, v41 n3 p324-328 2015
This research explored the congruence and disparity between teachers' and students' attitudes towards French as a second language (L2) teaching strategies in a non-target language classroom context in the USA. The findings suggest students' and teachers' attitudes towards the direct and indirect teaching strategies were generally consistent, but not in terms of the collaborative teaching strategies. The findings also indicate that the beginner and elementary level students held different preferences for all the three teaching strategies. The underlying reasons could be learners' different language proficiency levels, and how well teachers execute these different teaching strategies in class. This study concludes with some implications for foreign language teacher education.
