The Perfect Tense in French - a step by step guide

This is a stand alone resource on the Perfect Tense in French which aims to help students understand how to form and use the tense through a logical, step by step approach. page 1 - common ER, RE, IR regular verbs and common irregular verbs in the infinitive and past participle form. page 2 - what does the Perfect Tense mean in English? Form the tense by doing a coordinates exercise. page 3 - use infinitives, past participles and the Present Tense of ‘avoir’ from memory. page 4 - form the negative of Perfect Tense verbs in French and learn which part of ‘avoir’ to use when subject pronouns are replaced by proper nouns. page 5 - revise common time expressions used with the Perfect Tense and do a reading exercise. page 6 - a display sheet which students can stick in their books to show them at a glance how to form the Perfect Tense in French. page 7 - put your knowledge to work and conjugate, gap fill and translate then mark your work from an answer sheet. A game of French Busters and Battleships adds a little fun to practising the Perfect Tense. Other resources I have made on this tense are set in the context of a holiday in Paris.

Le meilleur système scolaire

I created this resource as part of a unit on education. It explores the strengths and weaknesses of different school systems around the world and gets students to think about how they learn and how different school systems attempt to provide the best answer to today's challenges around education. All sources are authentic (1 radio programme and 3 videos) and the links are on the worksheet. It is also an opportunity for students to learn and practise new vocabulary, as well as revise/learn about conjunctions that call for the subjunctive (bien que, pour que, sans que, etc.). This activity represents 1200 minutes of class work. This activity is ideal for A2 students, IB Higher level students or B2 level students.
