The Division of Humanities is introducing
two new, exciting programs:
Diploma in Languages
Certificate in Languages
Living up to its “Innovative University” trade mark, Macquarie is the first tertiary institution in
Australia to offer a Diploma in Languages (DipLang) and a Certificate in Languages (CertLang)
as undergraduate, HECS funded awards.
European Languages offered: Croatian, French, German, Italian, Macedonian, Modern
Greek, Polish, Russian, Serbian, Ukrainian.

By adding a DipLang or a CertLang in any European language to the degree of your
choice you could substantially enhance your career prospects in various areas, including
Business Administration, Commerce, Economics, Law or Media.
Alternatively you may wish to build on language skills acquired years ago.
You may always have wanted to learn a language other than English, and obtain formal
qualifications without having been able to commit yourself to a full degree program.
You may be studying a language at present, and would like to formalise your studies. Or
you may wish to start studying as a beginner.
The Diploma in Languages is a three-year part-time program that is equivalent to a major in a
language (24 credit points). It is open to anyone who qualifies for admission to a degree program
at Macquarie University or an approved tertiary institution. It can be completed together with a
degree or as a stand-alone program. Applications from prospective students should be made
directly to the University.
The Certificate in Languages is a two-year part-time program (12 credit points), and no admission
criteria are specified. It can be completed together with a degree or as a stand-alone program.
Applications from prospective students should be made directly to the University.
Studies for the Diploma and Certificate can be started at either beginners’ or post-HSC (or equivalent)
level. A number of units are offered in the evening and many units can be taken by

Throughout this well-constructed web site,
students will find a wealth of enjoyable activities
in French and also some valuable resources. With
few exceptions, all activities are led in French,
limiting its use to senior students. The possibility
of logging directly onto French related sites
within a particular activity, for instance, visiting
a French restaurant whilst working on La
gastronomie, adds a new dimension and an
entertaining way to learning the language.
General instruction offers a complete grammar
course with exercises and answers to help
complete activities. There are also several online
dictionaries including Dicovox, a vocal
dictionary. This is a valuable site for students in
search for extra activities in French.

The French Embassy in Canada has developed
this outstanding, interactive simulation for
students of French. The visitor lands in RoissyCharles-De-Gaulle airport and has six hours to
reach the Eiffel tower in central Paris, where
Monsieur Langlois has fixed a meeting. With an
hourglass at the bottom of the screen, visitors
have to make their way through the many
linguistic and cultural barriers, such as going
through customs and buying a phone card.
Incorrect answers withdraw time. The Toolvox
plugin allows the virtual traveller to hear
questions spoken in French, although
instructions are given in English. A handy
English-French dictionary is also available. After
completing this activity, a trip to Paris may not
seem perilous. Macintosh users would have

EUROPEAN LANGUAGES
distance education, often through online facilities.
Transfer between Certificate and Diploma as well as between Diploma and Degree is possible
for qualified candidates before completion of the program. Diploma students may be granted
credit of up to 12 credit points for relevant units completed at a tertiary institution and not part of
a completed award.
Overseas study
Overseas study is strongly encouraged for Diploma students, and candidates have the option of
studying at a tertiary institution in Europe. The Macquarie Study Abroad program is one of the
most developed in Australia and has proved most successful with students. Exchange agreements
are in place with universities all over Europe and the students’ overseas studies are credited
towards their Macquarie award. There are two types of overseas study units:
Residential Short Units are offered at beginners’, intermediate and advanced levels in Croatian,
French, German, Italian, Modern Greek and Russian. Students attend a short, intensive language
course at a European university during the mid-year break or the long vacation.
In-Country Study Units are offered over one or two semesters. Students undertake an approved
program of study at a European university, usually one with which Macquarie has an exchange
agreement. Macquarie University offers travel scholarships on a competitive basis for students
undertaking overseas study as part of their award. A number of those grants are set aside for
language students.

PROJECT FOR YEARS 5-10
Victoire pour PARIS
Paris is one of the five cities bidding for the honour to host the Olympic Games in 2008. The five
cities are working hard right now to compete for the selection.
Pour battre le fer pendant qu’il est chaud, we would like to encourage students of French to look at
Paris in the light of its potential as the best venue for this international event.
This activity will run parallel to the ‘real’ one and some excitement among the participating students
is to be expected when the announcement of the “winner” is made on July 16, 2001.
While it targets students of French, this activity will involve skills across the curriculum.
Ideally the project should be presented to the class / handed in by the end of June 2001. It can be
done by individuals or in groups. Instructions should be adapted to the targeted class(es).
Teachers can choose to judge projects according to the following criteria:
-presentation
-accuracy of language (expectations should vary according to Stage)
-authenticity
-value as a ‘convincing’ resource

CLASS ACTIVITIES
Ideas collected from
“Stage Paris-Toulon 2000”
Je m’appelle
Students sit in circle-first child says:
-Je m’appelle (name) et je fais (mime action).
Next student says the same, then adds what the
previous student said.
Elle s’appelle...et elle fait....
With younger children, recommence after every
third or fourth student.
Name game
1) From a list of nouns (professions, animals)
select one which starts with the first letter of
student’s surname.
2) From a list of adjectives, select one which
commences with the final letter of student
surname.
Form a descriptive sentence:
Example: Je m’appelle Paul. Je suis un pompier
loyal.
Un dialogue muet
Work in pairs. Describe something in mime.
Example: your pets, hobbies, favourite food...
Partner transfers mime into sentences.
Developing questioning skills
Teacher mimes a short scene.
Example: Elderly person carries a heavy suitcase
up the stairs to apartment, has difficulty finding
key, opens door, tries to open suitcase...
Teacher asks who what, where, when questions
to class.
Example: Comment est cette personne?
This can be done orally or children can complete
a grid.
Students ask clarifying questions to teacher
Example: Quel âge as-tu? Qu’est ce qu’il y a
dans ta valise?
In pairs, students recreate the scene, adding an
ending.
Vocabulary building
Class compiles a list of adjectives commencing
with the same letter. Work with partner to
complete the following sentences:
Ex: Le chat du curé est ----- et -----.
Memory game
Students are given a sheet of paper with pictures
of objects taken from a catalogue or hand drawn.
They have a minute to memorize three or four
objects.
Turn sheet over and report to class what they
memorized. Advanced students can describe how
they would use the object.
Comment ça va?
Students observe a sheet of facial expressions
and matching adjectives.
Example: triste, furieux, déçu...
Students mime and class guesses.
In pairs, students create a dialogue.
Advanced stage: each person in the pair selects
opposing sentiments
Example:.heureux/malheureux - Calme/énervé
Localisation
A descriptive seating arrangement is given to the
students who must draw up a plan in order to
find where a given person is sitting.
Example: Paul est à gauche de Flore. Devant
Claire, il y a Jean...
Comic strip
Some speech bubbles are blanked out. Students
create their own dialogue.
Consider who, what, where, when.
Picture talk
Observe a picture. Students describe what they
see. Answer who? what? where? why? questions.
Guess who?
Teacher provides each student with a list of
questions. Students work in pairs and ask partner
any five of the questions. Students write down
brief answers.
Students write a description of their partner
without using his or her name. All descriptions
are placed in a box. Teacher reads each one and
class guesses whom it describes.

A SPECIAL FRENCH DAY AT
GUNDAGAI
Who was there? Adelong PS, Bongongo PS,
Brungle PS, Gundagai PS, Nangus PS, Wee
Jasper PS, Gundagai HS. All led by a team of
very enthusiastic teachers of French and
supported by Amanda Davis (Languages
Consultant, Continuity) and Ghislaine Barbe.
Event: A day of activities to cater for students
of French from K-8. All were formed into groups
(vert, jaune, rouge, violet, orange, bleu) and spent
half an hour on each activity: aerobics, cooking,
side-show alley, friendship wall, la crosse,
boules, interactive poetry.
Outcome: It confirmed to the students that
French is accessible, fun and useful and that
many others like themselves are learning it. Some
children who live in isolated areas were in awe
of the huge number of people and the sheer size
of Gundagai! By the end of the day, all had
something exciting to show and tell at home. The
local media coverage (radio, television and
newspaper) was extensive and gave a much
higher profile to the French language and culture
in the local community.
Well done, everybody!

de Cannes 2000.
Peter Lorincz: à partir du 12 mars
Cathédrale (Alliance Française) / Goya
Parliament House / Gravures Allemandes
(Goethe Institute).
Peter Lörincz est né en 1938 à Berlin. Après ses
études d’art à l’Université de Mayence, il se
consacre à l’enseignement des arts plastiques,
puis du dessin, enfin du graphisme.
Il est aujourd’hui professeur à l’Université
J. Gutemberg (Mayence). Parallèlement à son
activité universitaire, Peter Lörincz expose à
travers le monde.
Il porte sur l’architecture un regard très acéré,
décelant un sens dans la superposition des
époques, et télescopant Goya et Coca-Cola. Ou,
à l’inverse, choisit-il de réinventer la source des
volumes et des formes dans une inspiration
surréaliste (telle la Cathédrale Saint Fulcran de
Lodève rendue à un état d’artichaut ou traversée
par un banc de crevettes!).
Michel (Laurent Lucas) et Claire (Mathilde
Seigner, Venus Beauté Institut) sont sur la route
des vacances. Canicule et enfants grincheux.
Michel rencontre un ancien camarade de classe,
Harry Sergi Lopez, une Liaison Pornographique.
La rencontre se prolonge, Harry et son amie
(Sophie Guillemin, L’Ennui), imposent leurs
envahissantes attentions. L’histoire d’un
glissement imperceptible de l’improbable vers
l’absurde contrôlé. De services exagérés en
meurtres libératoires, cette quête de la simplicité
devient effrayante. Rien d’impossible dans cette
comédie de Dominique Moll. Un film qui fait
sourire et dérange. Un excellent moment en
perspective.
