Reflections and Practices

Edited By Monica Tilea, Oana-Adriana Duţă and Alina Stela Reşceanu

This volume of thematic studies offers multifaceted interpretations of education for sustainable and solidary development (ESSD). It is a joint work of academics, teachers and researchers covering the domain of education from the perspective of economy, social sciences, language studies, communication and pedagogy. The authors propose a range of reflections and empirical studies which refer to: various means and methods for an effective teaching/learning process; transversal skills related to ESSD; and the importance of financial resources and quality assurance in education. The unitary and original endeavour of this volume establishes a common meeting point for devising up-to-date methods and practices across disciplines, with a view to supporting sustainable and solidary education.

The Effectiveness of Authentic Audiovisual Materials in Teaching and Learning French at University Level

Abstract: Authentic audio visual materials are some of the most important tools a teacher can and must use in class in order to make his/her teaching go smoothly and be effective in transmitting the necessary knowledge to all students. In this article, we will discuss the effect of using authentic audio and visual materials in teaching French language at the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, as a number of studies point out that the use of authentic materials is considered a useful means to motivate learners, arouse their interest and expose them to the real language they face in the real world. The use of authentic materials in French as foreign language classes is not new, because teachers started using them in the 1970s as a result of the spread of the Communicative Language Teaching Approach. This article aims at analysing the effectiveness of audio visual aids in the teaching–learning process at university level.

Keywords: authentic documents, effectiveness, audio aids, visual aids.
