Teacher Course

This teacher course is aimed at either current or future teachers of French as a foreign language. In order to take the teacher course, you must have at least an advanced level of French. 

Please see the below French text for further info regarding the course:

Public: Professeurs ou futur professeurs de Français étrangers
Objectif: Acquisition et/ou approfondissement des techniques pédagogiques récentes par mise en situation réelle et perfectionnement linguistique
Nombre: maximum de participants 14 par session Durée 2 semaines (26 leçons par semaine soit 5 matinées et 2 après-midis)

Ce stage a pour ambition première une réelle singularisation par rapport aux formations universitaires "classiques" en didactique du Français Langue Etrangère. Sans pour autant négliger les aspects théoriques permettant de dresser un cadre des différentes approches du FLE et des ressources à disposition, l’accent est mis sur une véritable mise en situation du stagiaire après lui avoir fourni les outils nécessaires à la construction, par petits groupes, d’activités de classe personnalisées. Notre but est donc, certes, de fournir un grand nombre d’activités "clés en mains" réutilisables par le professeur stagiaire, mais surtout de lui fournir les compétences nécessaires à une évolution de ce matériel afin d’atteindre l’autonomie totale en termes de création d’activités modernes et communicatives.

Le stagiaire se trouvera donc à la fois en situation d’apprenant et pourra toucher du doigt les difficultés concrètes que doivent affronter ses élèves, à la fois en position de formateur devant réfléchir sur le moyen de didactiser un support qui soit en adéquation avec les compétences de son public (nationalité, niveaux, objectifs…), le tout dans un climat de réflexion et de débat favorisant les échanges interculturels.

Nos modules se présentent comme un parcours balisé par l'interculturel visant à une prise de conscience globale des filtres qui déterminent notre perception de l'autre. Ainsi, publicité, chanson française, cinéma, langage SMS, télé-réalité... se tailleront-ils la part du lion pour aborder, selon une approche métadidactique, les thèmes incontournables de la grammaire, de la phonétique, de l'expression orale, de la civilisation, de la linguistique appliquée aux pratiques de classe, de la simulation globale...

Minimum age is 21 year .
