This article discusses the first results of a research project carried out in a number of first-year forms in Dutch schools for secondary education. By the side of the regular programme for French, this research project offered a light-weight extra listening programme, while for the sake of comparison other classes were offered a light-weight extra reading programme.After a few months in an interim test the pupils' reading ability, grammatical knowledge and vocabulary knowledge were evaluated.As a rough conclusion of this interim test it can be stated that the reading programme has yielded the most positive results at this level of teaching. The results of the listening-programme on the other hand are as yet hardly spectacular.At the end of the research project, which will be carried out during one whole school year, a final test will be given.
