Pistes didactiques pour construire une compétence de communication à dimension socioculturelle : le cas d'apprenants débutants de japonais langue étrangère en France

Abstract : Our work is located in the field of teaching Japanese as a foreign language in France, at a tertiary level. Our research is based on our own experience of teaching Japanese to beginners at the LANSAD department of Grenoble University. Our motivation is to improve our Japanese class. We conducted a preliminary survey which determined that the students were motivated primarily by Japanese culture. We then studied the concepts of communication competences and acquisition of these competences by learners. This led to our research hypothesis : classroom communication needs specific socio-linguistic and socio-cultural competences that require a didactic and pedagogical work of explanation. We then set up an experiment by filming two Japanese class sessions, then transcribed and analyzed excerpts from the video corpus. The analysis showed taht this intercultural issue cannot be postponed at a higher learning level because it is a very strong demand from learners and that this sensitivity is a important as the lexicon to communicate appropriately in a given situation. Teachers must be especially aware of the fact that they will be tested in unexpected ways during the interactions. They should then be able to respond, even partially, on some issues or launch a discussion to promote exhange between learners.
