L’apprentissage du français langue étrangère par le biais des chansons françaises aux hindiphones : analyse et propositions

Abstract : The present work aims at analysing and showing how a song, in all its linguistic, musical and sociocultural richness, can become a real tool of learning. First of all, the current situation of the teaching of French as a foreign language (FLE) has been studied, that reveals the use of the songs being limited to their grammar and vocabulary. Its analysis brings to the forefront the insufficient use of French songs in their entirety:aesthetic and artistic aspects being the less addressed aspects. In order to address this situation, the focus has been put on studying the theoretical notions in the domain of teaching of oral, music and particularly, songs. These notions are furthermore analyzed in the light of teaching/learning of a language to study the interdisciplinary concepts such as music, emotion, pleasure, aesthetic reception and experience, motivation, culture, songs, oral, etc. This research aims at identifying what is lacking and needed, with the help of pre-survey and interviews conducted in different institutes of New Delhi. Last but not the least, an art based project has been suggested to the native Hindi speakers studying in the 3rd year of FLE. This project highlights the advantages of the cross-sectional study referring to the important role of songs on the cognitive, emotional and sociocultural development. The playful side of learning through songs arouses aesthetic pleasure and new desire to express oneself in a language. This thesis not only concerns more than 300,000 Indians students of FLE but also relates to the fields of didactics, neurosciences, psychology, interculturality, linguistics and musicology. The suggestions developed here in this project apply equally to other languages as well.
