Content description
Explore changes to both French and Australian English, and identify reasons for these changes, such as technology, popular culture and intercultural exchange
  1. exploring the concept of the ‘ecology’ of French and of other languages, including English; that is, the interaction of language with constantly changing environments, referencing influences on contemporary French language use such as globalisation and technology
  2. identifying elements of language use in the Australian community that reflect the linguistic and cultural diversity of the population, (for example, intercultural exchange and experience), and words and expressions borrowed/used across contexts and activities such as sports, martial arts, dance, cooking, fashion
  3. considering the development of le franglais in communities of French speakers (for example, la pharmacie du corner, faire du shopping), and developing awareness of some aspects of current debates and discussions around its use
