VEAU — VEUX, BAC — BAGUE AND ELLE A PEUR DU FEU : A FEW REMARKS ON FORMS AND USING CORPORA IN PHONETIC ACTIVITIES, PROPOSED IN CURRENT MANUALS FOR FRENCH AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE FOR ADULTS AND OLDER TEENAGERS
In this article, through the analysis of the structure of phonetic activities included in chosen textbooks of French as a foreign language (FLE) used in Poland, we present the rules according to which the corpora are built and used. We also rate the adequacy to the task-oriented approach. Next, we prove how learners perceive this type of exercises and their usefulness for the correct pronunciation. Conclusions point to a regular presence, in analyzed textbooks, of specific phonetic activities based mainly on contextualized simple sentences, connected grammatically and lexically with the textbook contents. These exercises are evaluated and rated by learners as important for the correct pronunciation, which contributes to successful communication, and as helpful in gaining additional skills and knowledge.
