This resource is for Year 7 French students. It covers units on Greetings, Family, Countries, nationalities, school subjects and hobbies. There are a variety of puzzles and exercises which include word searches, crosswords, gap filling exercises, jumbled up word exercises to help students remember the vocabulary which they have learnt in their first year of secondary education. There is also a short vocabulary list and a teacher’s answer book. This should be used during the year but is also very useful for revision purposes.

Make players aware which ones are being used so they know which ones they must ask for to complete their sets. English and French word sets both included.
