This 3-week program includes an intensive 30-hour language-culture course in Noumea and further fieldwork with a Kanak tribe near Poindimie. The course focusses on historical, social, political and institutional issues faced by New Caledonia as a multi-ethnic and multi-cultural society with a history of colonial and post-colonial conflict. It involves developing appropriate knowledge and language skills to conduct an interview on such an issue and to report in oral and written form on it. It includes preparation and presentation of DELF exams. Students will direct their coursework, further fieldwork and further research towards a topic on which they write an essay on return to Australia.
