Chez le medecin

Chez le medecin

Powerpoint teaching students to understand and build up a conversation at the doctor. Starter: X/O on pains and ailments. Main: Using a conversation as an example, focus on the different parts adding vocab/grammar (pouvoir, depuis, passé compose, il faut). Parts of the conversation then disappear to give place to generic instructions for students to adapt for their own role play (I use finger/hand puppets). I don't make students write anything, just give them a copy of the important slides on one handout so they spend less time copying and more time using/manipulating the language
