Le séjour des étudiants brésiliens en France : effets sur les représentations, difficultés communicatives et interculturelles, changements

Abstract : Our research fits into the broader study of contact between languages and cultures; it focuses on the experience of Brazilians who come to complete a part of their studies in France. The object of our investigation is the concept of social representation of languages and cultures. Given the close relationship between representations and behaviour, the aim of this research is to carry out an investigation on Brazilian students in order to describe the change in sociocultural representations of France and of the French people which occurs over the course of these students’ stay in France. Data was collected by means of interviews, in which the subjects were also queried, firstly, about their motivations for studying French, and secondly, about the main communication barriers and culture gaps which students experienced during their stay in France. This research will be helpful both for Brazilians interested in the French language and culture and for French people. It will be especially useful for teachers in France who receive Brazilian students and for the organizers of the Grenoble-Brazil program or other exchange programs, who would benefit from a study of these students’ experiences in France.
