Teaching French as a Foreign Language to Students with Learning Disabilities
Linguistic Difficulties and Methodological Strategies
In this essay we intend to propose an early systematization of the difficulties for a dyslexic Italian student learning French. We addressed our interest to students attending secondary school (11-19 years old), because in Italy French is taught in these school levels as a second language. From a brief discussion of the difficulties of this language for people with specific learning needs, we will focus specifically on the errors made by dyslexic students learning French and we will highlight some possible action to make the French language more accessible even to people who have this disorder.
