In search of elements of phonetics : An analysis of phonetics as a tool for teaching French in Swedish upper secondary schools (English)
Abstract [en]

This examination paper looks into the role of phonetics today in teaching French language to Swedish learners and analyzes the content of upper secondary schoolbooks with regards to phonetic elements. Starting from the statements that French is perceived by Swedish learners as a difficult language and that oral expression has grown in importance in modern language courses’ syllabus, it is believed here that phonetics should be of utmost importance when learning French. As far as language didactics is concerned, it is a fact that research on the subject is almost inexistent. Very little seems to be done to develop and use tools to address phonetics aspects of the language in teaching, especially in learning manuals, that is a hypothesis. The objective here was, therefore, to see whether this could be confirmed. The results show that it is partly the case. Finally, a discussion is raised about ineffectiveness of intuitive learning and all that phonetics has to offer in the teaching of French to Swedish learners.
