    Research Interests

    Professor Leclerc-Dickler is currently developing a French textbook based on songs, which are the backbone of this teaching method. Each song includes specific grammatical structures as well as lexicon, which progress from the elementary to the intermediate level. The 16 songs form a musical accompanied by a textbook and audio recordings. The rationale behind this approach is to stimulate the right side of the brain to facilitate oral production of the French language by diminishing the fear factor.
