FRENCH VOCABULARY CARDS #1

FRENCH VOCABULARY CARDS #1

495 introductory words and phrases, ideal for beginners French, which always give my students a real flying start - there are 990 matching French and English cards, featuring vocabulary in the following groups: **- Les salutations Les jours de la semaine Les mois et les saisons de l’année Les nombres 0-100 Ma famille Les animaux Les matières scolaires Les fruits et légumes Les couleurs Les parties du corps Le temps Les pays Quelle heure est-il? (o’clock/half past) Les adjectifs La nourriture et les boissons Verbes français En ville Mots fréquents Le français pour la salle de classe Questions et réponses Conversation** There are five sets, each with 99 words and phrases (198 vocabulary cards). Each set also has an 18-page reference, recall and write workbook, with 3 differentiated challenges in each, as well as a full French-English alphabetical reference list, which is great as a year-round reference resource, not only when we’re working on these specific vocabulary groups. My students really enjoy applying and practising their French by creating game/quiz cards for each other, which is an additional way of consolidating vocab. I’ve found the best way to help students really learn their vocab is to allow them frequent and regular opportunities to work and learn independently with the cards and workbooks - not only when we’re focusing on these specific vocab groups, but throughout the whole school year - even more advanced students enjoy going ‘back to the start’! You don’t have to use all the cards at once - simply choose the vocab you want to focus on - the sets are really versatile - I use them for directed learning time, free-choice activity, homework, revision/holiday work and cover lessons for example. There are ten non-editable files in a zipped format. My resource is copyright, and can’t be shared with anyone, in any way - for wider departmental use, please purchase the whole-school license - colleagues further afield must purchase their own resource. I’ve explained copyright etc in my Terms of Use, which I’ve included here - please read them. Merci beaucoup, bon apprentissage et bon divertissement !

FRENCH CONVERSATION CARDS #1

FRENCH CONVERSATION CARDS #1

These FRENCH conversation cards are perfect for developing speaking skills - there are 100 question and answer cards and a reference booklet focusing on beginning conversation. They’re also great for multi-skill language learning - they give your students structured talk opportunities and will also get them listening, reading and writing. They’re ideal for independent learning, and perfect for pair and small-group work. The prompt cards also feature language and structures that students are likely to meet in the beginning and more intermediate stages of their FRENCH learning, including a range of tenses. The REFERENCE BOOKLET includes all the questions and answers written out in FRENCH. My students have always found it a very useful learning support resources and it’s also handy for whole-group pronunciation and reading-out loud practice. Students use the NOTES AND NEXT STEPS template to reflect on their learning, and think about what they might reasonably do to progress in their learning. The QUESTION AND ANSWER WRITING CARD TEMPLATES give students the opportunity to apply their FRENCH very practically, as they create both questions and answers for each other. This is a great team activity too. This set is a great complementary resource to my other TALK TIME IN FRENCH conversation cards, but works perfectly well as a standalone resource too. You can also use the cards for a whole range of games, and I’ve described how to play several you can start with. The resource consists of two non-editable files in a zipped format. Please read the TERMS OF USE carefully: this resource is copyright, and for single-teacher / purchaser / classroom use only. MERCI BEAUCOUP ET BONNE CONVERSATION!
