About In The French Body and In The German Body videodiscs and software
Other Internet Resources for nonverbal and paralinguistic language learning
The FIPSE-funded project "Face-To-Face With Change", promotes the learning of total communication
skills when dealing in-person with members of another culture. This means
teaching the elements of gesture, intonation, body movement
and pacing that impart a more native-like feel to a person's
second language performance and therefore diminish the
possibilities for cross-cultural misunderstanding.
The interactive video materials that support this teaching are
called "In The French Body" and "In The German Body".
Participating institutions will experiment with and observe
the ways that implementation of the teaching of nonverbal and
paralinguistic skills in foreign language can be fostered.
Teacher-generated ideas for implementation at the beginning,
intermediate, advanced and professional levels of language
training will be included on this web site as they become available.
