A passionate MFL and Media teacher for over 30 years, I am also a co-author of Expo 1 & 2 and am still involved in commercial textbook writing. I was an Advanced Skills Teacher for Modern Languages, running successful workshops for teachers. You will find here a range of resources for French and German teaching, mainly for 11-16 year olds. Plus some A-Level Media Studies and general learning resources. Based on over 30 years' classroom experience in the non-selective secondary state sector.

A 14-page booklet based around the film ‘La Maison du Bonheur' (Boon, 2006)
The activities are graded by difficulty , and are suitable for a range of pupils from 14 upwards.
The film's themes also appeal to older learners - (debt, the dream of house ownership, marital love, work-pressures, suspect estate-agents and unreliable workmen)

There is also an observational quiz section which could be done as a class competition.

The resource could be given to pupils as a three week study/project module.
The booklet (14 pages) includes a two-page glossary and an answer section.

The observation quiz sections can be done orally or in writing. The focus is in English to give all pupils an opportunity to show their often exceptional powers of observation. These sections work well as a class game – one side of the room against the other or boys v girls. They are a good way to keep less motivated pupils engaged. Vocabulary from the quiz is followed-up in subsequent activities. The quiz is a discrete opportunity to contextualize vocabulary.

Look out for other UFTEL (Using Film to Explore Language) booklets written by Jon Meier.
