Literary and intercultural aspects in methodology of teaching French as a foreign language
[Les aspects littéraires et interculturels dans les méthodologies du français langue étrangère]
This work is primarily a reflection on the teaching of FLE in the European context with emphasis on literary and intercultural aspects. In most FLE textbooks, the literary text is provided from level A2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. Obviously the use of texts varies according to the textbooks and methods of teaching. We will try to develop the place of literature in French as a foreign language class and its importance as a teaching aid.
Literary texts have long been used as an educational tool in the teaching of a foreign language. The role of literature remains essential in learning the culture and civilization of the Other. The literary text comes back after a disputed period and offers teachers and learners choices for easier organization of linguistic, literary and cultural lessons.
