A gap-fill exercise to practice recognising verbs. I thought this would be a fun activity for my 10/11 years olds who are just starting to learn verbs. It proved to be a huge success. They loved it. They found the translations so funny that and by the end of the class they knew all French 10 idioms off by heart. They went away from the class saying that they wanted to research more French idioms and offered to do it for homework!! Wow!! I wonder what they will come up? Please take the time to comment if you find this worksheet of any use. Your feedback is much appreciated.
Powerpoints for lesson starters. The Spanish idiom, and the pictures appear before the English, to allow pupils to guess. The word document contains some of the idioms from powerpoints but no English - suitable for a quiz. Feedback welcomed.
Intended for my National 5 class to prepare for the writing exam, but suitable for any class learning to write job applications. In the second document, the first page contains instructions for pupils and refers to phrases on the coloured paper. These are the phrases on the same page, which I copy onto coloured paper and cut up. I also cut out all of the Spanish and English phrases on the next pages.
I tried to select a nice topic and theme to teach and revise various skills and grammatical aspects . It links to Expo3 ( la Normandie ) rouge with the discovery of an area but I jaust added more on this so students get to compare areas and see how varied France is. I will add more through a different power point and add worksheets , this is taking ages .... hope it helps. I used the interactive quiz with the gap fill as a little starter and introduction about the Alps before showing the Power Point.
This is a bundle of ten AS/A-level French units of work which support the sub-themes of the three English examination boards. All AQA units (year 1) are covered.
Each unit consists of 7 to 9 pages of densely packed activities centred around a text and with an ultimate focus on translation into French. Tasks include matching, definitions, gap-fill, grammar drills, translation both ways, questions, comprehension, speaking and writing and vocabulary list completion.
Each unit builds up in difficulty and features pre-reading and pre-translation tasks leading to three translation passages into French, graded in difficulty.
You would use these during the first year of a two year course, or for revision in the second year.
The 10 topics are: family, cyber-society, education, work, volunteering, music, cinema, literature, personal identity and cultural heritage.
Every unit comes with answers, so you could hand these out for independent work or use them in class with little preparation.
You might like to put the units together as a booklet (about 110 pages) to be kept in class or given out to students.
Separately, each unit costs £3. We are selling the bundle of 10 units for £20. Once photocopied they will last you several years.
The units were co-written by Gianfranco Conti and Steve Smith and apply some of the principles laid out in their book The Language Teacher Toolkit.
An extended response to the past essay question:
Chirurgie esthétique, tatouages, piercings ... autant de pratiques de plus en plus courantes dans notre société. Il faut bien réfléchir avant de se lancer dans de tels actes.
Pourquoi est-ce que la chirurgie esthétique, les tatouages et les piercings sont si populaires aujourd’hui ? A votre avis, quels en sont les aspects positifs et négatifs ?
Greater in length than what would be expected, but has good phrases that your students could recycle.
This is a 25% sample of my very popular resource.
