To discourage students from using Google Translate in MFL, use this template for written work. The questions I’ve included are relatively basic questions in French on the topics of Free Time using past tense and present tense.
Students have a bank of useful phrases in the left column. In the right column, they have the question and space to respond.
In order to complete the written task, they need to write their response using at least 5 (adapt to your own class and their ability) of the phrases in the left column. When they have used one, they must highlight the phrase they used. This will get them to recognise the language they are confident using in their writing and show you how they are using that language.
Hopefully this will also prevent them from only going to Google Translate, but even if they do, they would have to make sure they’ve used the key language on the document.
I’ve also included 3 possible document templates - one with vocab bank and questions in the same table, one with the vocab bank and questions colour-coded to different tenses, and one that they can print out if they’re mainly doing book work.
