This is a PowerPoint presentation and a simple worksheet to compliment Module 6.3 from Listos 1. It involves present tense conjugation of regular and irregular verbs and freetime activities. There are some simple gapfill exercises on the PowerPoint. I get the class to fill in the verb tables on the worksheet and then write their own sentences linked with pictures from the presentation.

Game for revision of AQA GCSE topics - I have uploaded boards for other topics too. I print these in colour on A3 and have them laminated. All you need are counters and dice. There are suggestions on how to use the game too. Very good for independent learning, encouraging spontaneous speaking (group talk) and GCSE revision. Do let me know if anything needs changing.

This is a little activity i give to my class after we have practised the present tense of regular er verbs. I give them the list of verbs and encourage them to create their story based around the verbs rather than the other way round. If you check their French before they draw the pictures they can provide the basis of a very colourful display.

Print out several sets of the cards and laminate them. Pupils work in pairs or small groups and race against each other to form the present tense with the cards after reading from the PowerPoint. Good element of competition and really highlights how much (or little!) they actually know. Can be easily adapted to suit your requirements too.

Freizeit - talking about what you do in your free time

This is a lesson I prepared to review the German present tense on the theme of free time activities. It can be used to accompany the Echo courses. It begins with a brain teaser (in German of course) to practise word association. Then present tense phrases are introduced. You can show the vocabulary more than once before asking the class to practise their memory skills. There is a verb drill and a brief reminder of how to form the present tense. There are reading and speaking exercises. Mention is also made of stem changing verbs (lesen/fahren/sehen).

We laminate these and have them on every desk in the classroom. The feedback from our pupils is really positive and they have helped increase the amount of language used spontaneously in class.

Vocabulary Test tracker

This is a vocabulary mark book for test results (we use it for grammar and vocabulary tests but it can be used for any subject) which can monitor test results, retests and ranks the class for each test to encourage competition. I have included instructions on how to use the tracker. The file is protected to stop people from erasing formulae but the password is MFL. If you come up with a great update - do let me know. I know it isn't perfect!

This is another of my verb card races. Print off the cards from the word doc and get groups to compete against each other to get the translations right. It uses the verb 'porter' as an example and requires knowledge of the present, perfect, imperfect, future and near future.

This is another of my verb card races. You need to print off some sets of the cards, cut them out and laminate them. Pupils then race each other to pick up the cards to match what they see on the screen. I have mine move their cards to an answer board to stop them from copying others and then you can award points to whoever has the right cards on display. It encourages a good sense of competition, can be used again and again, and makes verb drills fun. (Requires knowledge of present, preterite, near future, future and imperfect tenses)
