Caveat: Some schools might consider the content a bit racy but I think my Y13s will be mature enough to handle it. Hope it works for you. I have also added a video of a reportage and interview with MC Solaar on the release of his Géopolitique album and some questions about the video.

A speaking practice based on the TV game show “Blind Date”: The students answer questions about themselves on the sheets. One student volunteers to be the “single person” and sits facing a wall with the questions in his/her hand. 3 contestants sit behind the single person and answer questions put to each by the single person. eg. “Personne numéro 2, quel est ton animal préféré?”. When the single person feels he/she has enough answers to make a decision, they choose their “date”. The contestants may modify their voices, but not so much that the French becomes unintelligible.

This is a Snakes and Ladders game I made in Smart Notebook software for oral/speaking activities as a whole class game, projected onto a screen. The students form teams, pick a counter and take it in turns to roll the dice. I then ask them a question (differentiated, of course!) and if they answer correctly, they can move their counter. If the answer is incorrect, they may not move their counter. It gets noisy in the classroom, but the students are all engaged. I have used this successfully from Y2 right up to Y13.
