A set of activities about the compelling 8 minute French film 'French Roast'. (Joubert 2008)
The film can be seen on Youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jbFhATUfuow
Although it only contains about 4 words of dialogue, the film provides plenty of scope to explore vocabulary and discuss aspects of French culture. It is also a good introduction to debates about prejudice.
Suitable for 12-17 year olds.
The material could be covered over 2 or 3 lessons plus a homework.
Pupils could also use the booklet for independent study or project work.
The booklet consists of 4 pages of activities which progress from basic observational vocabulary questions to more complex tasks about its message and techniques. There is also a film review scaffold which pupils can adapt.
Answers are also provided. Do not copy these for the pupils!
Another UFTEL resource (using Film to Explore Language). A must for anyone who loves film and France.
