On your bikes
The Tour de France starts in London and Kent this weekend, so this is the perfect opportunity to use the famous cycle marathon as a basis for some interesting French lessons.
The National Advisory Centre on Early Language Learning lists a range of useful websites offering cross-cultural and language learning activities.
Some of the best resources are featured on the multilingual Tour de France website, and the BBC provides an excellent phrasebook of cycle-race terminology.
The race continues in France until July 29.
