PLEASE NOTE THAT THE WHY STUDY LANGUAGES VIDEO HAS RECENTLY BEEN MADE PRIVATE BUT THERE ARE LOTS OF OTHER THINGS TO DO. THE FIRST VIDEO STILL WORKS AND IS ON THE NOTES PAGE OF THE SLIDE. I made this as a KS3 resource to show students that learning languages can certainly open doors in the future. Plan: Students mark on the progress line what they think of languages at the start of the lesson. Students listen to the celebrities talking about the languages that they speak and complete exercise A of the worksheet. Students read the statements and decide which ones are true. These are reviewed throughout the lesson and are finally marked at the end so that students can reflect on their learning throughout the lesson. The resources also include a version of the Game of Life. This is based on real life accounts of linguists. The links to the videos are in the footnotes of the powerpoint slides.

This is a powerpoint and a worksheet lesson targeted at the introduction of opinion verbs and simple reasons. It was designed for Y7 but it is a fun way to revise opinions with any year group too.

A puzzle in German to English to revise sports and key verbs and then a translation sheet to follow. Great for consolidation. All the vocabulary needed is given for the translations.

This contains two teaching resources: PLEASE NOTE THE VIDEOS ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE AND HAVE BEEN WITHDRAWN FROM THE WEB AND SET TO PRIVATE. STILL LOTS OF GOOD RESOURCES. Resource A: I made this as a KS3 resource to show students that learning languages can certainly open doors in the future. Plan: Students mark on the progress line what they think of languages at the start of the lesson. Students listen to the celebrities talking about the languages that they speak and complete exercise A of the worksheet. Students read the statements and decide which ones are true. These are reviewed throughout the lesson and are finally marked at the end so that students can reflect on their learning throughout the lesson. The resources also include a version of the Game of Life. This is based on real life accounts of linguists. The links to the videos are in the footnotes of the powerpoint slides. Resource B Students complete the word search on page one of the workbook. This has some of the jobs that you can do with a language. Students then play Call my Bluff (explained on the ppt), This game matches job descriptions and jobs. Students then look at some of the international comapnies that recruit linguists by playing a snap game. The lesson ends with a true false test on why languages are important. This is also on resource A One of the video links is used again in resource B. I made resource B to follow on from A that I had used in the previous year.

This is a starter/revision puzzle and includes the top 35 phrases and words that are most commonly used on the student and the teacher copies of the GCSE French Edexcel photocards. The wordsearch solution is provided and I have also reminded students that they will need to work out where to place the accents on certain words that they find in the puzzle.

Here are six planning sheets to get students to speak more spontaneously at foundation level so that they are not writing full sentences in the prep time on their CN2 form. Topics covered are: -part-time jobs -future job -when you have recently used a language -living and working abroad-an opinion -what you did at work recently -opinion on apprenticeship or university -a recent school trip -opinions on school subjects and sports at school -a school trip you would like to go on -a lesson that you have done recently -a sporting activity that you have done recently How I use this resource. I give students time to translate the bullet points and to write key words in each square. I give them key vocab to reinforce what they constantly forget or find hard. I would then read a question that matches the bullet point (I usually would make these up). I would then ask a student to give their answer. If the answer is good then on the smart board I write their name in the box. So if they answer describe the photo covering all parts of palms then their name goes in the first box. On each box to get their name in a box they must cover all of the prompts. I keep doing this repeatedly for about five minutes. Once all of the boxes have a name in then students can knock a student out of a box and replace it with their name. At the end of the five minutes all students with their name in the box get a house point.
