Incidence d'une formation en intercompréhension sur l'acquisition de compétences en français et autres langues étrangères dans un contexte scolaire (lycée)

Abstract : Investigators have been working on Intercomprehension for about twenty years. However, so far, there has not been any real assessment of the impact of this new methodological approach on the foreign language skills of students who have undergone such courses. This thesis aims to analyse the effects that a plurilingual course on line may have on the acquisition of language skills, especially the acquisition of a target language (French) by school students in Barcelona. In order to test the hypothesis that such a course may enhance students' skills both in the languages of the training course and in French, the chosen methodology implied the drafting of an (almost) experimental protocol designed for the students of a school in Barcelona. This protocol involved having a group of students participate in one of the training sessions set up on the Galanet platform, integrating it to their school teachings and including the drawing-up of different tests carried out before and after the course. Moreover, each student had to describe their language profile at the beginning of the training. Each test contains the same type of exercises, focusing on the same skills, and for each situation (either initial or final), there is one test on documents written in French and another on documents (written) in other romance languages (Italian, Portuguese, Romanian and Occitan - from the Vivarois region-). The skills' targets are as follows: textual coherence/cohesion, global and accurate comprehension, the identification of the degree of perception of interculturality, translation/reformulation, segmentation and the identification/ implementation of a speech model. All the data collected during the tests have been subject to both quantitative and qualitative analyses, and complemented by statistic processing, especially when correlations had to be made. At the same time the semi-automatic processing of the corpus of messages that was carried out using the Calico platform helped determine the degree of intercomprehensive interactivity (taking into account the code-switching in a bi/plurilingual context) of the messages posted on the forum during the plurilingual training course. This twofold analysis, based on concrete experiential data made it possible to conduct a case study and to determine, through the longitudinal study of their different results, if undergoing a training course in intercomprehension in a satisfactory way in terms of participation has a positive influence on the acquisition of the skills assessed by the tests, on which particular skill and how.
