La poésie - une collection de poèmes

(0)
Included in this document are poems from 6 French authors/poets: de la Fontaine, Apollinaire, Desnos, Rimbaud, Verlaine and Prévert. This document can serve as a reference for students as they progress through the different levels of French. For example, starting in French 1, I have my students present poems from this booklet to the class for a grade. It's a great way to work on pronunciation.

Let's talk! A speaking game

(0)
I developed this resource to help my students have something to talk about during tutoring sessions. Instead of the normal 'How was your day/What happened today?' questions, I created an easy scenarios for students to discuss. Students use a pair of dice to find the topic of conversation. For example, a RED die with a roll of 1 might mean the subject of the conversation is "JE" and a GREEN die with a roll of 4 might mean for the student to tell something that happened using the past tense. Included are: 1 easy game in English and 3 in French (with varying levels of difficulty)

Do you have students who struggle with correct French pronunciation? Of course! We all do! How much time do we spend teaching our newest learners how to properly pronounce words in French ? How often do they remember the correct pronunciation? I developed this system while reflecting on the struggles some of my tutoring students had this year. The MOURITSEN METHOD is easy to use for both teachers and students. You are purchasing a link to a YouTube video as well as supporting documentation. YOU WILL BE DELIGHTED WITH THIS IDEA!

Ne...pas goes WHERE? - teaching strategy

(0)
A few years ago, I noticed that my students couldn't remember where to put "ne...pas" in a sentence. It's easy to remember the placement of 'ne...pas' in the present tense, but my students struggled with placement in the passé composé, etc. This simple physical technique that I made up is catchy and easy to remember!
