15 slides/pictures in a powerpoint presentation of different people-- ask students whether they should use tu/vous tú/usted or du/sie.
Last slide asks students (in groups of 3) to act out the tu, vous (formal), and vous (plural) form of the verb. You can modify for Spanish or German. Can play last side as game of charades.
A 10 min. activity to use in the computer lab or assign as homework.
Looks at 4 mistranslations of google in French. Then assigns a few simple exercises/words to look up on wordreference.com to show ease/usefulness of using wordreference.com as a site.
Meant as a quick reminder for students that translation is a paid profession and free machine translators should be avoided.
