THE FRENCH ALPHABET

THE FRENCH ALPHABET

This resource is for students in Year 7 French who are beginning to learn French. Students will learn how to pronounce each of the letter of the alphabet in French. They can sing the alphabet following the teacher. It is a very useful activity for young students especially when they are asked to spell their names. Therefore, by helping students to understand and become familiar with the alphabet, we are giving them an indispensable tool in helping to make their communication intelligible. it is believed that, learners who are unable to pronounce words are also unable to understand them. This means that teaching pronunciation is an important area which should be dealt with regularly
