GCSE FRENCH: Forming French Questions with Interrogative Words Lesson and Exercises
This lesson has it all: video lesson, lesson in written form with examples, exercises, and a really fun activity to try out with your students.

This lesson is all about how to add meaningful question words to simple questions in French so that you will get more than a "yes" or "no" answer. Your students will learn how to use the question words: qui, quoi, que, quel, quand, où, pourquoi, comment, and combien (de). This lesson includes a video, so it can easily be assigned as homework, and you can save precious class time for the fun stuff!

Students will learn the rules for knowing where to place the question word in the sentence depending on the type of question they've decided to ask. This lesson is to be used in conjunction with the video lesson found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-BNGxGpqm7U&feature=youtu.be

Here you will find the basic rules needed for forming questions using intonation, est-ce que, and inversion. There are many useful examples to help understand the rules, and there's even an exercise (with answers included) to test knowledge. Don't forget to try out the activity at the bottom of the document, my students think it's so much fun, and it's a QUIET activity, even better!
Save for later
