At the start of the school year 2003-2004, the people in charge of national education in Syria wished to put an end to the situation of failure regarding the teaching of French as a foreign language. The « reform » which was decided involved a completely new approach to the language, an approach based on oral and communication. What we have undertaken here is a didactic reflection on how school children react to this new situation. We intended to examine the teaching methods of the past few years in a way both reflexive and critical. What has the reform changed concerning verbal (oral) practice in a syrian class from the moment the object of the reform was known. That was our starting line. What we are particularly interested in is to study the impact of the introduction of the communicative approach to language in the syrian educative system throughout an analytical survey of programs and school books. Teaching methods as well training of the teachers have also been part of our study. The prospect of our research in also to bring into focus the teaching of oral communication in the language class. Our conceptual framework is built up from the observation of the teaching of language, pedagogy, the analysis of interactions and the training of the teachers. We wanted our survey to be both descriptive and explanatory. The basis of the descriptive part consists in what we perceived while watching the lessons unfold in the various classes we visited. We also made a note of what were the teachers' resources. We have talked to the teachers as well as to the inspectors in charge of the teaching of the French language in our district of Latakia. Our survey also at being explanatory because we are going to comment on those information so as to find possible links between what we have witnessed and what the new programs are intended for. We tried to analyse the results on our research according to three points of view. First the habilities the pupils are supposed to acquire. The second is to know if there is actually a new practice of oral in the class resulting from the reform. The third bring up the question of what should be the specific trainings of the teachers that would make the reform a real success. Keywords : Didactic, competence, oral, interaction, formation
