Summary/Abstract: The article proposes an analysis of scientific literature on non-verbal communication in foreign language classes, especially regarding the manifestations of haptic communication and their implications on the successful acquisition of skills by students. Starting from contemporary research on the role of relations and affectivity in foreign language classes, we aim at analyzing the answers to a questionnaire provided to a sample of 20 French language teachers in the region of Oltenia, regarding their non-verbal behaviour in French as foreign language classes, from a self-reflective perspective.
