This resource is perfect for beginners who are learning numbers and dates for birthdays. It is a great way to build confidence in speaking since scaffolding is available for students who have a hard time remembering how to start.
This simple activity holds students accountable because they have to write their classmates’ birthdays on paper. At the end of the activity, you can have a circle of students and start a conversation, asking “C’est quand l’anniversaire de Sophie?” . Learners will then give the write answer if they interviewed Sophie. You can then ask learners to ask and answer questions in that circle.
