Le développement de l'enseignement du français en Arabie Saoudite par l'utilisation pédagogique des documents authentiques

Abstract : Our research has a double aim : to try to measure the competence of the Saudi students in the oral conversation by analyzing their productions ; to open new proceedings into the teaching of French in Saudi Arabia to slacken the austere atmosphere of this teaching and to thus motivate the students. Through the study of the corpus carried out near the students of advanced level, we found that the majority of them have difficulties pronounced with the oral examination : they do not speak with ease, they have problems on all the levels linguistic (lexical, grammatical, semantic, morphological...), they miss it much vocabulary. Vis-à-vis this situation, we felt the need to modernize teaching/training of French in Saudi Arabia. We were brought to reflect on the choice of new materials to especially teach French at the advanced level. We were obliged thus to innovate, introduce documents likely to motivate the students and to hold their attention. To achieve this goal, we did not find better than to work with them on authentic documents under all their forms : - written : article of newspaper, small advertisements, note of drugs, receipt of kitchen... - sound : press review, match of football, titles of a newspaper of radio, song... - visual : fixed images, photo novel, comic strip... - audio-visual : television news, film, play, match of football... - ludic : company, word, card decks... Thanks to their innovation, their variety and their diverting aspect, we are certain that these documents are able to motivate our students. Indeed, as we envisaged, the authentic documents brought their fruits. The students favourably accommodated them. Thanks to this new approach and to the new environment thus created, the students finally found the supports which encourage them to speak and consequently help them to improve their level with the oral examination. Thus they really wanted to be expressed and take part in the meetings devoted to the exploitation of the documents. Quite simply, they needed to be justified by a new way of approaching teaching. When something again, of different, interesting is proposed to the students, one can expect a positive reaction of their share.
