French: The present participle - Part II

French: The present participle - Part II

This presentation illustrates the second function of how the present participle is used in terms of how something is done in the context of accidents, injuries and misfortune. Once again, it also illustrates how it is formed with non-reflexive verbs, reflexive verbs and negatives. This would be very ideal for students who are studying IGCSE French, A-Level French and adults who are simply studying french for the first time or revision. The concept of the present participle appears in Unit 9 of the Cambridge IGCSE course and this activity also introduces names of injuries or ailments and the concept of non-agreement with reflexive verbs in the past form with direct objects. Happy teaching and learning!

French PAST Tenses: Verbes au Passé Composé avec ETRE, version Halloween!

French PAST Tenses: Verbes au Passé Composé avec ETRE, version Halloween!

It includes a PPT with 48 slides introducing all of the verbs that use the auxiliary "ETRE" in the past tense (passé-composé) with the infinitive, the past participle, clear examples of sentences for each verb. It also highlights the few verbs that can actually use both ETRE or AVOIR in the past tense according to their meaning. The whole presentation is made very interactive for the students to resolve an "Acrostiche" (mnemonic strategy) that will help them remember the list of verbs. It also comes with 2 innovative posters showing the verbs using ETRE and the ones using both ETRE ou AVOIR. Finally, you will also find a worksheet for the students to fill up as you go through the slides.

FRENCH VERBS 25 MUST-HAVE VERBS REFERENCE LIST #1

FRENCH VERBS 25 MUST-HAVE VERBS REFERENCE LIST #1

PERFECT FOR SUPPORTING LEARNING IN YOUR CLASSROOM! Create an instant reference resource for students focusing on essential FRENCH verbs. I’ve found that the lists are a great learning support resource, and they’re really popular with students too. They work well when students keep them carefully in learning files or folders for current and future reference. They also work well printed double-sided and laminated for small-group work in class. This list is a collection of 25 high-frequency verbs that I work with in the beginning to intermediate stages of FRENCH learning programmes. They include regular and irregular verbs, with some modals. They are all in the infinitive form - it's an important step in learning is to ensure that students quickly develop a useful vocabulary bank, are able to recognise FRENCH verbs, and are confident with the meaning of those verbs in English - at that point we can move swiftly on to looking at conjugation and using the verbs in a communicative and practical context. Students shouldn't take on the task of learning 25 verbs all at once though - this is more of a longer-term reference resource that students can use to audit their developing FRENCH verb vocabulary. I’ve also gathered together three further collections of 25 ‘must-have’ verbs which you can download for free too. You might also be interested in my verb conjugation reference tables too, which are also free to download. There are two alphabetical lists - one FRENCH-ENGLISH, and one ENGLISH-FRENCH, as I’ve found that students prefer to have both as a reference resource. This resource consists of two non-editable files in a zipped format and is offered freely, but please read the TERMS OF USE carefully, as it is copyright. MERCI BEAUCOUP ET BON APPRENTISSAGE!
