Using this activity (students preparing for the CAE exam) can have some extra classroom practice using some language for discussing ideas, agreeing and disagreeing, coming to a conclusion, starting a discussion, etc.
Pictures to be used for paired discussion. Children to study the picture carefully, and talk about it: What is the picture about? Who are the characters? What do you like about the picture? Imagine you are in the picture, who would you be? Where would you be? What are you doing? Designed to be used with R-time lesson Year 1 lesson 1.15. Also useful for SEAL lessons and other times where images of multicultural families and people are needed.
Powerpoint with hyperlinks to a variety of Tintin film clips and a 'homage' short film of how Herge could have created the characters. Questions on some of the clips and revision of simple descriptions.
selection of resources on topics of holidays, francophone countries and culture, poetry by Aime Cesaire, links to popular culture, song from Equipe 2 (perfect tense holidays) reading and dictionary work, discussion points about French colonialism,
PowerPoint and accompanying workpack designed to encourage pupils to use a variety of complex structures in their spoken and written French. I use it as a revision tool for pupils to use as part of their controlled assessment preparation. Please do let me know if you spot any mistakes.
Print out the cards and laminate them. Pupils work in pairs or small groups and race against each other to form the perfect tense with the cards after reading the infinitive and the subject from the PowerPoint. Good element of competition and really highlights how much (or little!) they actually know. Includes avoir and être verbs and agreement.
Can be easily adapted to suit your requirements too.
