How can pupils progress in their practice of a foreign language? Can we learn a language otherwise than in a language course? The non-linguistic disciplines organized almost everywhere in Europe have for principle to teach a traditional discipline (history, mathematics, chemistry, geography) in a foreign language. This teaching has to motivate the pupil to use the foreign language in contexts that emphasize the message, rather than the shape. What is interesting, it is that we exploit the situation of the most natural communication that exists at the school, exchange between the pupil and the teacher. And the language here is only an instrument to convey the material. Teachers and pupils speak to us about their experience of this teaching. Why did they choose to take part in it and what does it bring to them?
