Influences de la culture et de l'identité sur l'apprentissage du FLE: Etude comparative des enseignements/apprentissages en France et en Chine

Abstract : How do culture and identity influence the learning of French? What are the difficulties of the Chinese learners in the French classes, and why do they ask for grammar courses and rarely take part in oral activities? Through the research conducted by G. Hofstede about the cultural models associated to each country, and through studies in comparative education, I present the main differences between the French and the Chinese cultures as regards the learning and teaching of French. In a second part, the analysis of individual interviews of young Chinese learners in France shows that personality and individual identity take precedence over the cultural "conditioning" of each learner. Moreover, the discovery and the situation of interculturality necessarily lead to the modification of the learning habits and of the cultural references. These changes are favourable to the learner's decentralization and his/her adaptation to the new methods of learning, as they are practised in France. Consequently, their difficulties and "failures" tend to disappear progressively. But this means that French teachers should be aware of the cultural differences and needs of their learners, and turn interculturality into an advantage.
