Questions et réponses

There are five sets, each with 99 words and phrases (198 vocabulary cards). Each set also has an 18-page reference, recall and write workbook, with 3 differentiated challenges in each, as well as a full French-English alphabetical reference list, which is great as a year-round reference resource, not only when we’re working on these specific vocabulary groups. My students really enjoy applying and practicing their French by creating game/quiz cards for each other, using the vocabulary card template which is an additional way of consolidating vocab.

I’ve found the best way to help students really learn their vocab is to allow them frequent and regular opportunities to work and learn independently with the cards and workbooks - not only when we’re focusing on these specific vocab groups, but throughout the whole school year - even more advanced students enjoy going ‘back to the start’!

You don’t have to use all the cards at once - simply choose the vocab you want to focus on - the sets are really versatile - I use them for directed learning time, free-choice activity, homework, revision / holiday work and cover lessons for example. The cards to take a bit of prep - printing, laminating and cutting out, but it’s definitely worth the effort - you will be able to use the cards for years, with multiple groups of students. The workbooks are print and photocopy - and good to go!

The files are non-editable files in a zipped format. I’ve also included some free-to-download resources you may not have seen. The bundle is copyright, all rights reserved.

Merci beaucoup, bon apprentissage et bon divertissement !
