Les étudiants en situation de handicap en cours de langue étrangère

Katarzyna Karpińska-Szaj

Université Adam Mickiewicz Poznań

          Les écoles supérieures entreprennent souvent des initiatives d’étayage du parcours de la formation des étudiants en situation de handicap. Il n’est pas rare qu’elles disposent de l’outillage facilitant la communication et l’accès aux matériaux didactiques. L’enseignement des langues étrangères est pourtant une tâche particulière qui a un double objectif : le développement de la compétence communicative et l’acquisition des compétences spécialisées. Le succès de l’enseignement des langues étrangères dépendent donc surtout de la prise de conscience des difficultés d’apprentissage inhérentes aux déficits du langage observés chez les étudiants en situation de handicap.

          Comment peut-on adapter la formation langagière aux besoins individuels des étudiants en situation de handicap ? Quels documents didactiques utiliser ? Comment évaluer les progrès ? – la réflexion autour de ces questions va guider notre communication.

 

Students with disabilities in a foreign language class

Professor Katarzyna Karpińska-Szaj

Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań

          Universities often undertake activities supporting the education of people with disabilities, and often have adequate equipment to facilitate communication and access to teaching materials. However, learning a foreign language is a special task, as it also aims to develop language communication skills and acquire specialist skills. The success of learning a foreign language depends, above all, on the awareness of the specificity of the language difficulties of students with disabilities.

          How can language education be adapted to the individual needs of students with disabilities? Should special didactic materials be prepared for students with disabilities? Should, and if so how, the rules for the assessment of progress be adapted? - these are the basic issues raised in our talk.
