Taking the French for business course of the University of Cape Town as its framework, the article questions the impact of the technique of global simulation on learners' representation of a French-speaking country. It describes the context of the study. It explains what a global simulation is, and dwells on the concepts of "intercultural competences" and "cultural representations", showing their relevance to the study. It then presents a research project undertaken to verify the assumption that global simulation could have a positive impact on learners' representations.
