Even if language teachers regularly rely on   audio-visual resources, film making and editing is still considered as an   avant-garde teaching approach. Its potential lies in the fact that it allows   the role of the student to shift from reflective viewer to knowledgeable   content producer. In this article, we will present the results of a research conducted among 36 learners of French attending the same secondary school.   The study had three major goals. Primarily, it was to indicate students’   general perception of video-editing activities, i.e. to determine whether learners really consider this type of tasks as interesting and profitable.   The second aim of the research was to find out whether opinions of people   coming across this kind of tasks for the fi rst time would be divergent with the statements made by those who benefi t from it regularly during foreign   language classes. Finally, another important goal of the research was to   indicate whether variables such as gender, length of foreign language instruction, profile, as well as pupils’ general views on the nature of   second language learning and the self-perception of their language abilities   can have an impact on their video-editing activities perception.
