GCSE French 9-1 - speaking activity : trapdoor

GCSE French 9-1 - speaking activity : trapdoor

Trapdoors to revise topics of schools, future plans and global dimensions (higher and foundation for this). I have been using trapdoors a lot lately and apart from the original game of guessing the paragraph, you can push on with pronunciation, then remove words to create a gap fill exercise for listening skills and then some translations… Might be some typos but you can fix it! I hope it helps :)
