Abstract

Faced with a lack of exposure commonly experienced in foreign language learning contexts, the researchers decided to engage the learners with an innovative collaborative assignment. The experimentation involved 22 learners from a bachelor degree majoring in French attending the French for Tourism and Hospitality course. In this assignment, the learners had to shoot a video promoting a Malaysian touristic place using their cell phones. The objectives of this research were to motivate the learners by challenging their language, cultural and creative skills, to evaluate their professional competencies in accordance with the course objectives, and finally to associate the learners to the creation of pedagogical audiovisual material. The videos were analysed according to the language, cultural and professional parameters of the course learning outcomes in line with the research objectives. This article describes the benefits as well as the pitfalls encountered during the project.
