Heterogeneous Class and Teaching Practices within the French Course

Anila Pango


This study deals with the heterogeneity of classes of French foreign language, the strategies and devices that are suitable to the learning profiles of the public. Learners are different regarding: the learning skills, the way of thinking, their motivation to learn, modes of communication and expression, the socio-cultural environment, culture, beliefs, family history, values, psychological characteristics personality, attention, will, curiosity, energy, rhythm, etc. Individual disparities that show the heterogeneous classes rather appear as a challenge for a "traditional FLE1" teaching. Facing heterogeneous learners, it is essential to implement varied, diversified, cooperative, and comprehensive pedagogy. Differentiated pedagogy, tutoring activities and interaction between students are the methods we have experimented in order to improve the written expression of the students which led us to getting positive results in function of teacher-student interaction. The central idea is that interaction enables students to benefit from the differences by considering them as a source of learning and not as an obstacle.
