Eurovision 2018 MFL FRENCH

Eurovision 2018 MFL FRENCH

Resources that can be used for a lesson or two on Eurovision for a French class. Would work particularly well with Y9 and GCSE to get them using more interesting opinions but can be adapted for any year really. It’s good to use for Media topic (Music) and for writing with opinions. I have used this resource many times over the last few years and just changed it each year to make it up to date, it has always gone down really well with students! Resources include: Powerpoint Sweepstake of countries to cut out* Score cards for the semi finals *(will add the Final scorecard when final contestants are announced) Worksheet that includes a countries match up English to French and a score card that pupils can write their votes on and choose an adjective to describe each song. (from BBC Eurovision website)

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.

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.

12 Christmas Quizz in French for All Levels

12 Christmas Quizz in French for All Levels

This is a collection of 14 quizzes on France and French language for KS 3-5 students, depending on the resource. Most of them are in French but a few for KS3 are in English. The length varies between 10 and 30mn . Most of theses quizzes are interactive PPT so they can be displayed on whiteboard and are fully editable. The title indicates the targeted audience. I use these quizzes either at the end of term or for starters/plenaries with great effect. Students really enjoy them as it's covering a range of cultural topics about France ( medias, geography, history, famous people) and it's a refreshing change from the linguistic side of their French studies. Enjoy!
