Researching of Instructional Strategy

The primary instructional strategy that I am planning to use in regard to the course of French has interactive nature because language acquisition presumes having direct contact with a teacher. I want to ensure my students are responsive to my questions and are willing to learn. Therefore, I will start the training course with greetings so that each trainee can share their personal information with the rest of the group. Moreover, the first session will be introductory, and each participant will be asked ice-breaking questions regarding their previous experience, expectations, and other information.

The interactive instructional strategy presumes students develop social skills by learning and discussing new material in groups. However, this method will not be efficient enough without the direct approach, which is instructor-based. It means that the lecturer presents the new topic and explains it using audiovisual content. Hence, the instructional strategy will be the following:

Time Topic LearningObjectives Learning Points Method Materials
10:00-10:15 Introductory part
  • Introduce the rules
  • Greet each other
  • Create friendly environment
Icebreaker activities Projector
10:15-11:00 Introducing oneself
Reading rules
  • Teach students basic phrases as “My name is…”, “I am from…” in French
  • Introduce reading rules and practice reading French words
  • Introduce an alphabet
  • French pronunciation drastically differs from the English one
  • Some letter combinations are pronounced differently from the way they are spelt
Lecture, presentation, and open discussions Projector
Handouts with useful phrases and reading rules
11:00-11:30 French language and culture
  • Introduce the specific feature of the language and culture of France
  • Watching two videos about culture and language of France will provide students with the background knowledge
Open discussion
YouTube videos about French culture and language

The course suggested by Institut Linguistique Adenet offers different programs for learning French. The standard program for adults is beneficial because it entirely focuses on the practical aspect of the language, that is, building communication. In addition, it encompasses both oral and written skills development. The number of students ranges from 5 to 8, which is advantageous because they can be divided into small groups to practice collective activities. The course is adapted to speakers with different levels of French. However, since people who enter the course have different levels, the amount of knowledge distributed will be unequal. Moreover, the lesson lasts for only 45 minutes which is not enough to grasp the material.

There are several types of trainees who are somehow hard to deal with. Usually, when learning a foreign language, some students are afraid of making mistakes and just shy in general. These quiet trainees can participate in discussions in small groups, and since they won’t have to speak to a broad audience, they can practice talking with two or three of their fellows. In turn, the talkative students might be too active; thus, asking another student to answer the questions is vital. The other type, angry trainees, claim that they do not need courses. The teacher or coach should ask them and their fellow students about their goals and expectations from training. In addition, the comedian trainees may ruin the training plan by inserting witty but inappropriate comments. Even though their remarks might seem funny, such students should be aware that some jokes might sound offensive. Hence, talking to them during the break is necessary and clarifies that mocking should not interfere with studying.
