Spot Santa: Christmas Market in Montreux, Switzerland- Marché de Noël

Spot Santa: Christmas Market in Montreux, Switzerland- Marché de Noël

This is a powerpoint presentation with 58 slides, taking on a visit around the famous Montreux Christmas Market, one of the biggest one in Europe. Each slide got a clear photo taken at a time when it was not crowded by people so you can really get a taste of this Christmas market. Each slide also has a simple sentence describing the photo. Finally, to make sure your students get a little bit extra fun, there are 58 tiny Santas hidden (one on each slide) for them to spot.

Les vacances du petit Nicolas- Sempé- Reading comprehensions Higher

Les vacances du petit Nicolas- Sempé- Reading comprehensions Higher

4 reading comprehensions exercises from "Les vacances du Petit Nicolas." Perfect for teaching the topic of holidays. The short stories reinforce all vocabulary seen (places, activities, opinions, suitcase items, use of different tenses). I have selected extracts and added a series of questions. As this is an authentic text, I would aim these activities for a higher group (from year 9 to year 11). Great to include a bit of French culture and literacy in your lessons. I have added a link to the trailer of the film (adapted from the short stories). Could be a good way of introducing the topic or as a way to engage pupils before the reading comprehension. **Timers and answers are included. **
