FRENCH CONVERSATION SPEAKING PRACTICE These French conversation cards are perfect for developing speaking skills, and for engaging with a range of language and concepts within a single activity - there are 100 question and answer cards and a reference book. The focus is on using French reflexive verbs in the present tense. There are 48 reflexive verbs featured in the Q & A activities, and I’ve included an alphabetical French-English verb list in the reference book. The cards are ideal for multi-skill language learning, giving students structured talk opportunities and they also get them listening, reading and writing. They’re perfect for independent learning in pair or small groups. They’re really popular with my students!

The prompt cards also feature language and structures that students are likely to meet in the more intermediate stages of their French learning, I’ve included a reference book, which includes all the questions and answers written out in French - my students find it a very useful learning support resource, and it’s also handy for whole-group pronunciation and reading-out loud practice. It also provides a writing frame to inform their own creative writing. We use the** Notes and Next Steps** proforma regularly, as it gives students the chance to reflect on their learning, and think about what they might reasonably do to progress - it guides and informs our whole-group discussions too. My students also use it to add new vocab and verbs, which helps them create great new sentences. The reference book can also double as a really useful translation practice activity too.

My students really benefit from applying their French practically using the question and answer card writing templates - they create both questions and answers for each other. This is a great team activity too. We also use the cards for a whole range of games, and I’ve described how to play several you can start with.
