10) Arthur's adventures in England - imperfect and perfect together, en train de

10) Arthur's adventures in England - imperfect and perfect together, en train de

The Arthur series of comics in French, help our students who are working with Tapis Volant 2 but can be used by anyone. This is number 10A in the series and it goes with unit 10 in Tapis Volant talking about accidents and emergency situations. It demonstrates use of the imperfect and perfect tenses together plus use of ‘en train de’. On the cover page there are comprehension questions. Sadly, I cannot upload the sound file but a teacher can read out the text. We use the this for both listening and reading comprehension. You can white out the words if you want to use it for listening and students then have the comic pictures as support.
