LA SENSIBILISATION A LA DIVERSITE LINGUISTIQUE : UNE DEMARCHE ADAPTEE AUX AMBITIONS ET POSSIBILITES DE L’ECOLE PRIMAIRE

CANDELIER, Michel


Evlang ( developing language awareness in the elemen-tary school ) is a UE supported action/research program to develop an original approach to languages in the French elementary schools. It is not so much a matter of teaching one foreign language, but rather of introducing children (9 and 10 year olds) to the diversity of languages and cultures, and to develop their capacities for observing, analysing and learning languages. In order to develop these capacities, children work on texts, both written and oral, in a wide variety of languages : regional languages, minority languages, immigrants’ languages and school language in its various forms.

A comparison is made between this approach and the one officially recommended in the French school system, showing a significant number of common features concerning the skills required in different subjects in the curriculum (including "mastery of the language") as well as general learning and social skills.

A brief survey of the problems raised by generalizing foreign language teaching in French primary schools together with an analysis of teachers’ reactions to Evlang leads to an assessment of the potential value of the language awareness approach at the elementary school level.
