La Bise - a story for French learners - Google Drive edition
Bryan is an American who is visiting France. He doesn't want to be rude, so he's prepared himself for the French custom of La Bise. But unfortunately, he didn't listen to the entire explanation in French class! Bryan's trip starts out fine but his cultural misunderstandings get him into more and more trouble.

This Google drive activity includes a 3 1/2 page story - appropriate for 2nd semester and later French students, with comprehension questions and other activities. Also includes a map about La Bise with questions and an infographic about French prisons (a topic that comes up in the reading) with comprehension questions. This activity could also be used as a sub activity.
