Content description
Interact with French speakers and resources, recognising that intercultural communication involves shared responsibility for meaning making
  1. exploring the reciprocal nature of intercultural communication, the two-way process of noticing and responding to differences in perceptions, understandings or behaviours, for example, attitudes to interruptions, personal space and physical contact, and degree of formality or directness
  2. using personal journals and discussions to reflect on critical incidents in the course of learning and using French, such as breakdowns or breakthroughs in communication, and discussing repair and recovery strategies and insights gained
  3. discussing ways in which the experience of learning and using French challenges preconceptions, stereotypes or attitudes
  4. exploring the process of ‘decentring’ from own linguistic and cultural standpoint and considering how ways of behaving and communicating might be perceived by people from different backgrounds
