La France - Advanced French conversation questions about France

(0)
❖ La France - Advanced French conversation questions about France ❖ Part of our series of “discussions ciblées”. List of 35 vocabulary words related to the conversation questions about France. Includes 20 discussion questions. The questions are suitable for upper level and AP French or for middle and high school French immersion. The questions are fun and thought provoking, and interesting discussions will happen! Students probably won’t know the answers to a few of the questions, and when they find out they will know a lot more about French culture! You can print the list of words on one side of a page and the questions on the other side so that students can easily refer to the new vocabulary during their conversations. If you make a two sided copy everything will fit on one page. Also included is a set of speaking cards for students to use prior to using the discussion cards so that they can become familiar with the theme and many new words. The cards just need to be printed and cut out so that your students can use them in pairs or small groups. Each card says, “Décris le mot suivant en français et ton partenaire le devinera.” The vocabulary word is written both in French and English since many of the words will be new. This exposure to the vocabulary will make the discussion that follows flow easier. Students will still have easy access to the list of words on the other side of the photocopied questions. Don’t want to print? That’s ok! A PDF with just one card per page is included for easy projecting or for tablets.

GCSE FRENCH: French Poetry Lesson: DÉJEUNER DU MATIN, Jacques Prévert

(0)
Looking for a great activity for intermediate level learners of French? This is a lesson that covers reading, writing, listening, and speaking. It's a fun way to introduce your students to French poetry, and though the poem is spectacularly well known in France, it's easy to understand. Students will learn new vocabulary, and practice the passé composé. Here's what the lesson consists of: Watch a 3 minute silent short film with your students (YouTube link provided). The court-métrage is a very well done acting out of the poem. Students write what they think the poem is about after having watched the short movie, and they identify the feelings they felt. At this point you can encourage students to share with the class. Before reading the poem there is some new vocabulary to learn. Important vocabulary from the poem is introduced in a multiple choice activity, and after that I've included a flashcard set on Quizlet for you to share with your students so that they can revise (link provided). At this point, there's a link to another YouTube video to show your students. Again, the poem is being acted out, but this time with the poem being read at the same time. Students will have a much better understanding of what the poem is about at this point. The next part of the lesson is to practice the passé composé, since that's the tense that's used throughout the poem. Students will fill in the blanks with the passé composé form of the verb in parentheses. Regular, irregular, and reflexive verbs. After you've gone over the answers with your students, there's a reading exercise that could be done either in the classroom with a partner, or even better, in the language lab where students could record themselves reading the poem aloud. At this point, you could offer bonus points for students who want to memorize and recite the poem.
