How to make French crêpes

How to make French crêpes

If you cannot get a kitchen, which was my case, it works well to make a demonstration with key instruments and ingredients, but without really cooking. First do the demonstration and students have to order the strips from the recipy you are reading (better to have rehearsed before!!). Then they can analyse the recipy as a reading. Finally you practice pronunciation as a group and students rehearse doing the demonstration themselves in front of the class. I like to organise a cooking competition as H/W: students can cook at home and bring crêpes for tasting. We then vote for our favourite!

Technology - Pair work reading activity

Technology - Pair work reading activity

Encourages pupils to scan texts for familiar language and then try to work out new vocab before using a dictionary. Divide your class into groups of 4-6 pupils. Give each group 1 copy of the 5 mini texts about Google glasses. Give each pupil a copy of the worksheet. Pupils study one of the texts and answer any relevant questions before swapping the text with other pupils in their group. Keep the 5 texts circulating around the groups until pupils have answered all the questions. Every now and then play some timed music (approx. 2 minutes?) and only when they hear the music are they allowed to use a dictionary. When the music stops they have to close dictionaries!

French Teaching Resources. Les 24 Heures du Mans. Le Mans. Motorsport. Cars.

These resources are designed to give the students a taste of the thrilling Le Mans ambience and an appreciation of the prestige, dangers and challenges of the event! It uses exciting YouTube clips, colourful slides, matching cards, a video worksheet and a poem/writing template to imagine being a driver in Le Mans. A great end of term lesson!Slide 2 states the objective: Objectif: To learn facts and vocabulary related to Les 24 heures du Mans. All: Will learn 7 new facts and French words.Most: Will learn 9 new facts and French words/ phrases.Some: Will learn 10+ new facts and French words/ phrases.Slide 3 is the warmer and lesson hook. It asks : Qu’est-ce que c’est Les 24 Heures du Mans? There is then a link to the fantastic 1 mins 25 sec trailer for The Journey to Le Mans. The students can then share facts and French vocabulary which they already know.The students then match 9 x English- French cards with facts about Le Mans e.g.Les 24 Heures du Mans sont une course automobile d'une durée de 24 heures.Le Mans est dans le département de la Sarthe en France.La première course s’est déroulée en 1923.Elle est une des courses les plus prestigieuses au monde.Slides 5-11 allow you to run through the information on the cards and elicit the English.Slide 12 links to the worksheet in the resources. The students match French-English vocabulary:1. Un mécanicien2. Le podium3. Un accident4. Un casque5. Le coucher du soleil6. Le lever du soleil7. Le drapeau à damier8. Une voiture hybride9. Un pneu10. La nuitThey then watch the Michelin 2015 Le Mans Highlights (3 minutes 14 secs), ticking the vocabulary they see (I’ve added a couple of additional words to the worksheet). The extension task is to list other things they see.Slide 14 is to be used with the (more detailed) support sheet. It sets out the final creative task:All: You are a Le Mans racing driver! Write a poem/ account of your 24 hours at Le Mans! You may wish to use the suggested template below: Il est 14h59. J’attends. Je suis prêt/ prête. Je suis calme. (time + verb + adjective) Il est 15h00. Le Tricolore! On commence! Je suis confiant/ confiante. Je suis fier/ fière. Il est 22h00. Le coucher du soleil…..Most: Build in negatives e.g. je ne dors pas.Some: Build in:adverbs e.g. parfois and toujours…connectives e.g. et, mais, cependant…other tenses e.g. je voudrais + infinitive.The final slide then gives the opportunity for reflection.I hope you enjoy using these resources!

"Choisir la fin" - Plenary Wheel / Plenary Selector / Plenary Generator (French MFL Version)!

"Choisir la fin" - Plenary Wheel / Plenary Selector / Plenary Generator (French MFL Version)!

See preview in my free uploads...Can I first apologise if anyone is actually French and using this! I think I have expertly translated as best I can. Excusez-moi!This version of my plenary selector gets students to look back at what they have learnt in a French lesson. Slide 1 includes a spinning wheel that can be stopped to choose the plenary for the lesson. There are seven different outcomes so it could be used regularly and routinely in lessons to get students to reflect on their learning, all fully resourced where required.The PowerPoint took ages to make and code, so please don't share too readily! You must enable macros on your computer to allow it to work, or get in touch with your IT technician!Enjoy.I own all text, even the French stuff. Images are public domain and copyright free.

recette de buche de noel

Like the title says, a recipe for a christmas chocolate yule log, a classic dessert in France. Can be used for translation exercise and if you are really lucky, after the pupils translated it, passed on to the food and tech department for them to do in class. Hope it is ok.
