Enhancing Personal Knowledge of the French Language and Culture – a Sabbatical Report

Alison Dickinson, HOD Languages at Palmerston North Boys High, was last year awarded sabbatical leave following 25 years of service.  She took the opportunity to undertake some research into the relationship between culture and language, while spending a term in France.  She has written a report to share with teachers of languages. This has been passed on to us by Sue Pommarède, President, NZAFT, so that we can share it with members.  The report can be downloaded from this link: 2015 Sabbatical Report
