The website has been developed by scholars and language educators at the University of Lethbridge. The mission of the Lethbridge Curriculum Developers (LCD) Group is twofold: 1) to provide quality resources to support French language instruction, and 2) to model how theoretical concepts can be translated into practice. The main emphasis of the LCD Group is the development of task-based materials (see Foundations section for an elaboration on task-based language teaching). To this end, the website includes clusters of task-based lessons and examples of tasks that fit within each of Willis’ (1996) six types of tasks. The LCD Group is also dedicated to promoting intercultural communicative competence (see Foundations section) in the second language classroom and has included a section of activity ideas and lesson plans to demonstrate how intercultural themes can be embedded in and complement second language instruction.
