La notion d'aisance dans la production et la réception orales en langue étrangère : définition, variations et implications didactiques

Abstract : What exactly is "fluency" in foreign language speaking or comprehension? We tried to answer this question by consulting, firstly, didactic publications and, secondly, sixty foreign language users. The definition of "fluency" arrived at in this way distinguishes four levels f fluency. Each of them is marked by a series of conditions (or characteristics) describing the discursive, psycholinguistic and sociolinguistic competence of the speaker or hearer and their performance. We checked then to see if the definition given varied according to the age, occupation or nationality of the language users interviewed. In particular the definition given by the "linguists" and the Flemings varied in comparison with that of the "non-linguists" and of the Spaniards and the Americans. We then studied which factors can influence "fluency" in a negative or a positive way. Finally, we described, first of all, which language activities can help the learner to speak and to comprehend fluently and, secondly, when, how and by whom to evaluate fluency. All of these methodical proposals have been valued by a group of language teachers and learners.
