Abstract

The aim of this graduation thesis entitled “The perception of students who have finished all the courses from the B.A. in Modern Languages: specialization in French and English in the year 2018 about their simultaneous learning of French and English in the skill building area and its impact in their professional status” is to determine and describe the students’ appreciations, feelings and strategies about their levels of knowledge and domain of French and English achieved in the major. This research results from a certain controversy since many students and external people are in favor and against of the current distribution of the syllabus of the B.A. in Modern Languages career. Also, the research group considered these types of studies have not been deepened so far. For this reason, it is intended that all the information collected will be very helpful, to adapt new needs and expectations, with the aim of adjusting the current system of study of the students if necessary, in the future. This thesis first examines the diagnostic of the problem. Then, the research work is based on three main theories to develop the whole work. The firs theory is “Krashen’s second language acquisition theory”. The second theory is the Environmentalist theory to explain the role of outside influences over the acquisition of a second language. Finally, the “Interactionist theory” is the third one included to show that language acquisition is by the interaction of a number of factors like: physical, linguistic, cognitive and social. The results of the research show that students from the B.A. in Modern Languages Specialization in French and English are expected to be at an advanced level of knowledge and domain of French and English when their skill development area finishes (theintensive courses; fourth and fifth semesters of the major, according to the syllabus), but they do not take any test or exam to evaluate their final levels of competences when they finish all the courses of the major. The authors recommend to the students to study hard both languages at the University and outside of it and to be autodidact.
