I love creating French resources as much as I love using these with my learners. I taught A Level French from 2010 to 2016 and I now run my own language business teaching adults and tutoring GCSE and A level students.

Reading or Listening Activity - The Present Tense (aimer + infinitive) - Mes passe-temps

Reading or Listening Activity - The Present Tense (aimer + infinitive) - Mes passe-temps

(0)
This activity works well in a class setting to show the structure (aimer + infinitive) in use and to recycle useful vocabulary. You could do 1) a quick verb review – I give the learners the English words and I read out the French. They number the words as they hear them (passive recall). When feeding back, I ask learners to say the English and then encourage them to say the French if possible (active recall) followed by a quick vocab recall activity. 2) I then just give the learners the sentences for the true, false, not mentioned and I read the passage (usually two or three times). 3) we check answers while reading together the passage and stopping after each passage to check understanding and to highlight examples of the aimer + infinitive structure and any others that follow this pattern 4) learners then model these structures to create their own sentences. Hope this helps!

Tenses Consolidation Worksheet inc Si Clause with Imperfect and Conditional

(1)
A quick tenses review / consolidation worksheet where students have to circle the verb in the correct tense (including present / perfect / simple future / imperfect) followed by 4 sentences to conjugate verbs to form a correct ‘si clause’ structure using the imperfect and conditional tenses. Ideal as a homework task or class activity to assess learning and pinpoint any areas requiring review. Students could also translate the sentences as an extension exercise.

Mes vacances - Perfect Tense - Reading or Listening Activity

(0)
This is an example of one activity I have prepared for the Perfect Tense that works well in a class setting to show the structure in use and to recycle useful vocabulary. You could do 1) a quick vocab review – I give the learners the English words and I read out the French. They number the words as they hear them (passive recall). When feeding back, I ask learners to say the English and then encourage them to say the French if possible (active recall). 2) for the Perfect Tense, I then ask them to highlight verbs take avoir and verbs taking être (and then to circle irregular verbs) 3) I then give them the sentences for the true, false, not mentioned and I read the passage (usually two or three times). 4) we check answers while reading together the passage and stopping after each passage to check understanding and to highlight examples of perfect tense – one colour for avoir verbs and one for être. 5) learners then model these structures to create their own sentences. Hope this helps!
Vocab & Reading  Activities - la tele, l'environnement, les habitudes alimentaires, la jeunesse

Vocab & Reading Activities - la tele, l'environnement, les habitudes alimentaires, la jeunesse

(0)
This 9 page booklet includes vocabulary activities followed by a reading activity, which also model key structures, on the following topics: la television (present tense, expressing likes and dislikes and expressing opinions) L’environnement (simple future) Les habitudes alimentaires (present tense) Ma jeunesse (imperfect) I often use these as listening activities by reading the passages and just giving learners the true, false or not mentioned sentences. I also like to review the passages and encourage learners to highlight key structures that they can use as models for their own work. The activities are quite challenging but hopefully the vocabulary prep activities will really help the learners.
Perfect Infinitive - Mosaic Translation Activity
gooders76gooders76

Perfect Infinitive - Mosaic Translation Activity

(1)
This activity helps to consolidate the use of the Perfect Infinitive through a mosaic style translation. It is also a good springboard to further question pupils on some of the key aspects of the structure - for example ‘why did we need to use ‘apres etre’?’, what would you put if it was 'after brushing her hair?, ‘what would you change if the speaker was female?’ etc… as well as some other features such as ‘what is the difference between visiter and rendre visite’?, ‘how do the prepositions in the final column help us chose the correct answers?’ etc… It works really well if the pupils can use 6 different coloured highlighters! You could extend the activity by asking pupils to create new endings to follow the Perfect Infinitive structure or perhaps ask them to create a new Perfect Infinitive structure to start the sentence. You could even then ask pupils to read out their new start or new ending and ask the other pupils to decide which original start or ending it is linked to. The answers are included.

Getting to Grips with French Verbs: The Infinitive and Present Tense Workbook

(0)
The workbook includes explanations and examples as well as lots of activities for learners to review, consolidate and develop their knowledge of French verbs, and more specifically the use of Infinitive verbs and the Present Tense. The activities can be given to learners for homework or can be used in a classroom / group setting in a more creative and interactive way. There is a Teacher’s Guide on how you can maximise the use of the activities within the classroom. The activities in the workbook are suitable for learners who are just beginning to work on the Present Tense and also learners who may need to refresh this knowledge to help them consolidate the basics. (The CD is not available with the electronic version but this can be overcome by the teacher reading out the passages in Chapter 9 or by learners completing the activities as reading activities).
