LUCIOLE, an English listening comprehension learning game for 6-9 year olds

Abstract : Despite reticences among school teachers, due mainly to a lack of confidence in their own oral proficiency (Delasalle 2008, 376), French official instructions demand that children “train their ear to the sounds of a new language” (MEN 2015, 29) as early as CP (1st grade — 6 year olds). Indeed, studies have shown that French learners display more difficulties in listening comprehension skills than their European counterparts (European Commission 2012). Influenced by input-based foreign language acquisition theories (Krashen 1982; Bybee 2008), LUCIOLE aims to be an aid for English listening comprehension by providing language activities based on native speakers recordings.
