Representations and language practices of Algerian students in France between desire for success and culture shock
We focus on the Algerian students living in France who are asked to use all available means to adapt to their surrounding and succeed in their academic career. According to this view, we will answer the following question: how do these students perceive French language and what is the impact of this perception on their integration and success in France?
We opted for a qualitative approach based on semi-structured interviews. Analysis of the corpus revealed a very ambivalent relationship of respondents to their languages which wavered between the symbolic domination of the French language and the rejection of Arabic.
