Les ateliers du dire (lectures, écritures, littératures) : enjeux et expériences de la voix en langue(s) étrangère(s)

Abstract : This research in teaching and learning French as a foreign language aims to analyze the practices of a body of workshops recently conducted in various contexts of acquisition or learning. Whether these language experiences refer to creative writing, slam poetry or drama, what they have in common is to "try say" – to quote S. Beckett – in a foreign language. The targeted analysis of three experiential dimensions allows us to bring to light a conceptualization of these “speech workshops” as tests of subjectivation in French. As a "language workshop", every workshop seeks to take advantage of the participants' situation to reinforce their language activity and the many related historicities (language cultures, multilingualism, literatures, education). As "workshop of the multilingual subject", the “speech workshop” programmes a relational path with literary works of language which are exemplary in terms of enunciative intensity. As a "workshop of the voice", the “speech workshop” engages precisely the participants in ordinary “tests of voice” that are not necessarily part of an artistic creation. In this perspective, by producing and guaranteeing strong notional/experiential continuities (learning-subjectivation, literacy-orality, etc.), such workshops in foreign languages would constitute a critical lever of the injunctions to communicate or to act addressed to the social actors. Their specific process is not only a contribution to the teaching of French with the language arts. It also opens research leads to feed the training of teachers in terms of experiential repertoire, tactical gestures and voice expertise.
