Content description
Analyse how different types of text incorporate cultural and contextual elements
  1. analysing how writers of community texts such as advertisements, radio requests or online trading posts make decisions in relation to language, style and register in order to achieve their purpose and suit the context, (for example by using personal pronouns, engaging language and images, or by creating problems/offering solutions (Un…deux, un…deux, on rit, on s’esclaffe, on glousse! Pour être au top lors de l’arrivée des beaux jours!)
  2. understanding the dynamic relationship between different modes of communication in different cultural contexts, (for example, hybrid texts such as emails or text messages that combine features of spoken and written texts, or formal lectures or news reports that resemble spoken versions of written texts)
  3. analysing cultural differences in genres such as cover letters for job applications or letters of complaint, noting protocols and conventions (for example, stating the purpose of a formal letter at the beginning: le recyclage proposé dans notre ville..)
  4. collecting, interpreting and using textual conventions popular with young French speakers, for example, contractions, abbreviations and acronyms used in text messaging (bjr = bonjour; A+ = à plus; biz = bisous; 12C4 = un de ces quatre)
