French Grammar Through Song - The Conditional Le Conditionnel

French Grammar Through Song - The Conditional Le Conditionnel

Use this resource as a review and reinforcement of the conditional mood. Three songs are used - modern and classic - to appeal to boys and girls alike, to show students how the conditional is visible in the real word. A whole lesson is prepared here - with objective, main sections - discussing which of the conditional phrases is the most extravagant in the songs. They then match up the different phrases present and listen to the songs completing a gap fill. To complete the lesson, students are invited to write a written paragraph in the conditional (easily adaptable to whatever unit you are teaching). Further extension projects are available too. Sound files provided and alternative youtube links too just in case.

La Musique - The Voice

La Musique - The Voice

Lesson on the different types of music using The Voice. Four students need to go to the board, facing the back of the room. When clicking the note on the slide a video from an actual The Voice France audition will play (between 30s and a minute) and the students need to decide if they like it or not (turn around or note) and then give an opinion and a reason in French. For the links to work, the videos need to be in the same folder as the PowerPoint. I have used it with Y7 to Y11 (adapting the language) and it has always been a success.

French music randomizer

French music randomizer

Powerpoint with youtube links to French songs. The slides play automatically on a loop. I usually get a student to say stop and we play the song. A red dot on a slide means that I wouldn't necessarily show it to KS3 and I would advise you to check the clip / lyrics before playing it before KS5.
