Abstract: This paper introduces a novel methodological approach to promote enhanced Foreign Language (FL) learning for all FL learners through affective involvement. This methodology uses constructivist pedagogic strategies to address learners' diversity and support learners' autonomy and their active engagement in learning. This self-directed, multi-modal learning approach strategically uses thematically structured communicative activities to promote authentic language use and foster energizing living experiences in the classroom. This methodology endorses current positive pedagogic values, such as authenticity, relevance and involvement. /L/This paper first describes multi-modal FL pedagogy and demonstrates how it addresses the issue of learners' diversity, characterizing today's FL classrooms. An explanatory application of multi-modal FL pedagogy in a multi-ethnic, multi-ability and multi-age French-as-a-Foreign-Language class is then presented.
