Le meilleur système scolaire

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.

Mon travail bénévole

Mon travail bénévole

A lesson on volunteering and charity work. Includes a photo to describe, a reading comprehension, a group work, and an outline of a writing task. I also included two activities based on authentic French resources on volunteering which probably may be more suitable for higher ability students: a translation into English and a reading with a potential extension writing activity.
