La Rentrée Scolaire - French Taboo Speaking Game

✮ La Rentrée Scolaire - French Taboo Speaking Game ✮ Playing games and having fun is when learning really happens in French class, and here’s a fun activity for la rentrée. You can really get your students speaking with my themed taboo games. French Taboo is a game that is easy to modify and use with beginners and advanced students alike. This game includes 30 playing cards. You get a set in French and English as well as one in French only. Practical for French immersion and core French programs. Object of the game One player tries to get his teammate to guess the word at the top of a card. The player must give clues, but he can’t use any of the Taboo words in his description. The taboo words are written beneath the underlined word at the top of the card. Teams score points for each word successfully guessed. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins. The teams take turn guessing and verifying no Taboo words have been used. You can also play this game in pairs if everyone agrees not to cheat. Beginner students should be allowed to use the French TABOO words printed on the cards. This will encourage them to use new vocabulary and will help them in forming sentences to use as clues.

Inspiré

Inspiré

Here are fifteen of my favourite old (and new) maxims for French students. Most are inspirational. Some are just for fun. A few are both at once. Note: The last quote has been a personal favourite since I was a student. However, this particular bit of wisdom by Michel de Montaigne is probably not appropriate for your classroom walls.

50 More Facinating Facts about France

A power point which includes 50 slides containing detailed information about: monuments in Paris, the 'Tour de France’ famous landmarks in France, food, geography, history, famous people and other bits of interesting information… My original ‘50 Facts about France’ powerpoint has proved to be very popular. I am hoping this will also be as popular. I have added a French Facts Quiz/Test sheet, which I hope you will find useful too. If you consider this worth paying for, ‘un très grand merci.’ My thanks to clker.com, and openclipart.org for the use of the clipart images. Most of the the life-like photos are my own.

French idioms worksheet

French idioms worksheet

For extra fluency, use idioms. But how do we get students to appreciate the meaning behind the sometimes bizarre literal translations? Make the bizarre literal translations the point of the exercise. It doesn’t take much to work this into your lesson, and you effectively only need to do it once because the students will have a copy of the idioms waiting to be used, whenever they think to use them. The students only need a dictionary. If you want to make it harder, give them a limit to how many words they can get translated for them (say, 3) and you use an online dictionary to show them what they mean. That way they need to look carefully at the phrases, work out what stumps them most, and get help for the phrases that they are least likely to be able to work out themselves. The second sheet is the answer sheet.
