RESEARCH OVERVIEW

PhD thesis in Language Sciences
Our thesis is part of an innovative project which integrate virtual reality into English learning among French students in professional high schools, in correspondence with German high school students. We are interested in the virtual reality’s effects on listening comprehension in English, in particular on lexical recognition, through cognitive engagement in the learning task. Also, we analyse the role of the teacher when using virtual reality tools in teaching tasks. To this end, we conducted quantitative (semi-controlled experiments) and qualitative cross-studies (observations, interviews, surveys) with the French teachers and students involved in the project (4 teachers and 84 students).

Master thesis in French as Foreign Language Learning and Didactics
We conducted a study among students from Spanish high school who learned French as Foreign Language in order to propose individualized listening strategies according to their learning style and strategies. To achieve it, we organized qualitative (interviews, logbook) and quantitative (surveys) studies with 13 students. We concluded the need to create individualized portfolio about the styles and learning strategies that every student would complete during his or her course, especially in a linguistic context where French as a Second Language teaching loses ground in school curricula every year.
