ROCHA, Décio. A discoursive approach of foreign language classroom as a place of work. DELTA [online]. 2003, vol.19, n.1, pp.155-180. ISSN 1678-460X. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-44502003000100006.
This paper focuses the analysis of speech in foreign language classroom in a particular situation: the teaching of French as a professional language. Our purpose will be to explore enunciative marks that contribute to determine the nature of the work carried out in classroom throughout the collective construction of a text which is built by the actors of the didactic scene, the teacher and the students. In order to achieve our goal, we will interrogate these discourses from a triple point of view: first of all, the opposition between collective work and individual work in classroom; afterwards, the double function of language - language as work and language about work - in such a context; finally, the distance verified between prescribed work and real work in classroom.
