Innovations in Languages for Specific Purposes - Innovations en Langues sur Objectifs Spécifiques

Present Challenges and Future Promises - Défis actuels et engagements à venir


Edited By Magdalena Sowa and Jaroslaw Krajka

The papers collected in this book present diverse views and experiences on teaching English and French for specific and academic purposes. The scope of reflection covers a wide spectrum of cognitive areas of ESP and FOS, encompassing a multitude of training aspects and components (curricula, methods and techniques, materials and teaching aids) from the perspective of both LSP teachers and learners. A great range of topics related to work-specific language instruction addressed in the book displays the interdisciplinary nature of the research area, integrating aspects of linguistics, sociolinguistics, didactics and pedagogy.

Les textes réunis dans le présent volume exposent les idées et expériences relatives à l’enseignement de l’anglais et du français sur objectifs spécifiques et universitaires. Les sujets de réflexion ici abordés couvrent un vaste éventail d’aspects cognitifs et organisationnels (curricula, méthodes et techniques, matériels et outils) propres aux formations en ESP et FOS, ceux-ci envisagés dans la perspective des apprenants et des enseignants. La diversité d’éléments inhérents à la formation linguistico-professionnelle discutés par des didacticiens-chercheurs éminents témoigne du caractère interdisciplinaire du domaine d’investigation LSP qui intègre les points de vues des linguistes, sociolinguistes, didacticiens et pédagogues.

Les exercices de langue au cœur de la professionnalisation des publics de spécialité : éléments méthodologiques pour l’enseignant-concepteur

Abstract: With the advent of the action-oriented approach which embraces learning by doing, exercises are often viewed as old-fashioned and no longer needed. Yet, even the most recent educational publications devote a large part of teaching resources to exercises. While teachers insist they are essential to teach specialized languages and key grammar notions, students recognize their familiarity, which makes it possible to conduct quick self-assessment as well as work with small brush strokes tailored for overburdened schedules. Besides these well-identified advantages, we would like to show that exercises are also an effective entry into professional logics and practices, extending beyond the mere linguistic objectives that are too often assigned to them. In light of this, they are a key element to give students and academics insight into jobs and specialized fields, provided this dimension is taken into account.
