French GCSE – Une histoire mystérieuse – imperfect, perfect and pluperfect tenses.

French GCSE – Une histoire mystérieuse – imperfect, perfect and pluperfect tenses.

This resource is to actively practise and use the 3 past tenses – imperfect, perfect and pluperfect. It goes through a revision of each tense with exercises to check comprehension for each tense and an accompanying worksheet. Then the main text is introduced which is part of a ‘mysterious story’. This is first as a listening activity with two different exercises to complete and a worksheet. The text is then used as a reading comprehension with a range of questions, grammar and writing activities to complete. The final writing activity involves creative writing, as students need to provide their own ending to the mystery. Answers to activities are on the PowerPoint. This should certainly take two – three lessons.

FRENCH - EUROPE POSTER & QUIZ PACK - EN FRANÇAIS !

CREATE AN INSTANT AND COMPREHENSIVE INTRODUCTION TO EUROPE IN YOUR CLASSROOM, DEVELOP GEOGRAPHICAL KNOWLEDGE OF EUROPE AND ENHANCE SKILLS IN FRENCH AT THE SAME TIME!70 POSTERS WITH EUROPEAN COUNTRIES, CAPITAL CITIES & FLAGS4 QUIZZES, 4 CHALLENGES - 120 MULTIPLE-CHOICE QUIZ CARDS, COUNTRIES & CAPITAL CITIES WITH RECALL & WRITE QUIZZESThe posters give your learning environment a great multicultural look and feel, at the same time promoting FRENCH as a living language, featuring in the everyday life of your - and your students’ - classroom. There may be a number of countries and capital cities that students do not know, or are not aware of, so the posters can help students develop their general knowledge and understanding of EUROPEAN GEOGRAPHY. I’ve included a range of islands, such as the FAROE ISLANDS, to extend students’ knowledge of EUROPE a little further, and I’ve also shown some countries, for example ARMENIA, that are often classed as belonging either to EUROPE or to ASIA. I’ve also included two posters for some countries, such as FRANCE, officially known as the RÉPUBLIQUE FRANÇAISE - you can choose either the more frequently-used LA FRANCE or the RÉPUBLIQUE FRANÇAISE to display.With the quizzes, students can further develop their knowledge of the geography of Europe in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, using FRENCH as the means of communication. The quizzes are great for listening, speaking, pronunciation and reading out loud, working well as both a small and whole-group team activity. There are four speaking/writing challenges: CHALLENGE 1 prompts for a specific capital city; CHALLENGE 2 prompts for a specific country; CHALLENGE 3 prompts for a capital city in writing; CHALLENGE 4 prompts for a country in writing. The quiz card templates allow students to put their memory to the test in a different way, and to apply their knowledge very practically, as well as engaging with some writing in FRENCH: they can create their own set of multiple-choice questions for each other! There is also an alphabetical by country reference list of all countries and capitals, which students find useful to read through before playing. Laminate the cards and reference sheets if you can - you’ll be able to use them for years to come! The posters and quizzes are also available as separate resources, each priced at £4.00.The resource itself comprises 4 non-editable files in a zipped format; please read the TERMS OF USE carefully - the resource is copyright, and for single-teacher use only.MERCI BEAUCOUP ET BON DIVERTISSEMENT !
