Se présenter en français

Powerpoint with 23 slides to help students introduce themselves and other people. This is useful to revise basic French, greetings, where you live, nationality description personal information and social French at both KS3 and 4 level. This is very interactive, so students can practice role plays in pairs in class. You can spend the whole lesson on it.My GCSE students found it useful for preparing for the role play part in the exam.

FRENCH STARTER VOCABULARY (1) - CHRISTMAS GAMES & ACTIVITIES

FRENCH STARTER VOCABULARY (1) - CHRISTMAS GAMES & ACTIVITIES

PERFECT FOR DEVELOPING LANGUAGE SKILLS AND BUILDING VOCABULARY IN FRENCH!Have some CHRISTMAS FUN with this set of FRENCH STARTER VOCABULARY GAMES AND ACTIVITIES! It features 99 words and phrases to keep your students joyful as they practise and perfect their FRENCH vocabulary at CHRISTMAS!The games and activities really do help to create a lively language learning environment, where students can work happily together, with both teacher-led and independent learning activities.I've classed the resource as suitable for ages 7-14, but it really does depend on the age at which your students begin their FRENCH learning.They definitely take a bit of prep – printing and laminating. Laminating is certainly worth the effort and expense, as you will be able to re-use the cards for many CHRISTMAS lessons to come. They will also take up quite a bit of your colour printer ink – printing in black and white will work equally well, as students can easily identify the FRENCH and ENGLISH cards from the different fonts used for each language. The whole-group practice and quick quiz activity is simply ready to go! The SET 1 SANTAS feature vocabulary in the following word groups:- Les salutations- Les jours de la semaine- Les mois de l'année- Les quatre saisons de l'année- Les nombres 0 à 31- Les couleurs- Quelques pays du mondeThe resource itself comprises 3 non-editable files:- game cards in both FRENCH and English - whole-group practice activity and quick quiz - whole-group practice activity and quick quiz that you can load on to a tablet or similar deviceso that students can work independently, and is perfect for your homeschool too I've included a selection of preview images to give you an idea of what the resource looks like as a whole.The SET 1 SANTAS and SET 2 SNOWMEN are also available as a combined mini-pack at the special CHRISTMAS price of £5.00 - you can see it here:https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/french-starter-vocabulary-1-and-2-christmas-edition-games-and-activities-11166946Please read the Terms of Use carefully – this resource is copyright, and for single-classroom use only.MERCI BEAUCOUP - JOYEUX NOËL ET BONNE ANNÉE !
