French:  General activity on relative pronouns 'lequel, laquelle, lesquels, lesquelles'
KRIS240680

French: General activity on relative pronouns 'lequel, laquelle, lesquels, lesquelles'

(0)
Relative pronouns using 'lequel, laquelle, lesquels, lesquelles' is a highly tricky concept and requires much greater understanding, however I have designed this activity to facilitate this and there is a quiz which follows. Upon completing the 5-step method, you will have developed a much more proficient understanding of it all. This concept is briefly mentioned at IGCSE level, but used more profoundly at AS and A2 level French. There is also a wordsearch which revises previously learnt relative pronouns which can be used a warmer activity before the main stage of the lesson begins. Happy teaching and learning!
French: Stage 1-2: Regular '-er' verbs in the present tense

French: Stage 1-2: Regular '-er' verbs in the present tense

(0)
Welcome to Stage 1-2 !! The purpose of this powerpoint is to become deeply acquainted with the formation of tenses and verbs, especially for those who have difficulties in doing so. This is a very good way of introducing the conjugation either when teaching it for the very first time or revision. This is the 2nd stage of the learning process and there are 72 stages in the entire process. By the end of the 72nd stage, learners will have a developed a very profound mastery of not only forming nine different tenses which range with complexity upon progression, but also, an exhaustive range of different verbs which have been very carefully divided stage by stage. Upon completion of Stage 9-8, the final stage of the process, will immensely prepare students to pursue with their French studies at university level, where they will inevitably be using tenses. It is also suitable for adult learners, again whether they are learning it for the first time or revision. This folder contains the following regular -‘er’ verbs in the present tense: Arriver Entrer Parler Partager Porter Manger Regarder Essayer (slightly irregular) When showing each slide, there is an audio clip on each new item that you can click on and you will hear my voice which demonstrates the pronunciation of each item, or alternatively, you can lead the pronunciation of each item. It is up to you! The learners will then reiterate the new items every time they see the slide ‘This time you try it!’ You will be very surprised to see how it will stick in their minds!! I would strongly encourage you to purchase the follow-up activity ‘French: Stage 1: The present tense’, which enables students to manually complete the drills based on what they have learnt. They are £5. Upon completion of Stage 1-8, there are tests also available. There are also subsequent activities after the pratising of the conjugations. Happy teaching and learning and the very best of luck!!

Cambridge IGCSE French: Listening activity workbook

(0)
I have developed this resource from having designed my own worksheets from the Cambridge IGCSE textbook (2015 edition) into a workbook. The listening activites follow the whole book from units 1-15 and most of them are differentiated between lower level and higher level activities, however as the book progresses, the less the lower level activites become available as I strongly encourage my students to undertake the same level of work upon entering the second year of the IGCSE programme, as the examinations are going to be at the same level. Before you purchase this resource, please note that these resources are designed from and follow the Cambridge IGCSE 2015 edition and the NOT the newest 2017 edition. Happy teaching and learning!
