A basic text on en ville / in town in French with too much repetition. Pupils are given a range of alternative expressions to re-draft the piece of writing and improve it. This activity used to be called Pimp my French when the TV show Pimp my Ride was popular. You can give pupils a "budget" - a very precise number of words they have to use to deliver an improved piece of writing to the client. Uses connectives, verb + infinitive, opinions.
