Abstract

This research project aimed to investigate whether the teaching of French phonics had an impact on pupils’ confidence, accuracy and pronunciation when reading a foreign language aloud. A small study was carried out, where pupils in one class completed a questionnaire and a focus group took a phonics test. Both questionnaire and test were done pre- and post- phonics intervention. The findings revealed that the explicit teaching of phonics does improve pupils’ confidence and their ability to pronounce foreign words more accurately. The study concluded by outlining the successes of the research and the recommendation that additional research should be carried out in order to further support the findings.
