A-level listening task on assisted dying from Arte. Linked video report with sheet of discussion, questions in French and "find the French". This would go well with texts in the social issues section of the A-level page. An interesting, linguistically challenging report for teachers and students.

, Y10-11 (Intermediate)

Short video from mangerbouger.fr with pre-listening brainstorm, true/false/not mentioned exercise and vocabulary to complete. Good GCSE task for Y10 or weaker Y11. Not sure I'd make my soup that way. Nice to see turnips get a mention, though.

A-level listening. A report on fracking, la fracturation hydraulique, explaining it and presenting potential dangers. Good A2 level material with sentence completion exercise. France is reluctant, the UK government gung-ho. What do students think?

Easy A-level listening task which could be used with a good GCSE group (high intermediate). Romain is interviewed about his holiday in Corsica. True, false, not mentioned + correct false statements. Natural, authentic language. The source video is from France Bienvenue.

A-level listening task on tattoos. This is quite short, good for AS level (low advanced). Pre-listening discussion, vocab finding and questions in French. Looks painful to me.

A-level listening from the wonderful Universcience.tv site. A report on the weird creations of a Japanese professor of robotics. Exercises are pre-listening discussion, "find the French" and translation into English. A weirdly disturbing report! Mr Data has competition.

A listening task from France Bienvenue. Jessica is talking about her favourite sport. This would work with low advanced or upper intermediate (GCSE) students. The transcript is on the site so this may be better led from the front by the teacher. The exercise is in the form of true/false/not mentioned statements.

A-level listening task. An interview with Melissa from the France Bienvenue site. This is fairly straightforward and could even be done with a good intermediate (GCSE) group. Comes with questions and some vocabulary. There is a transcript on the site. Could be done from the front or individually by students as long as they don't use the transcript.

Advanced listening and discussion task on the topic of democracy. Based on a lively TVSite report with helpful words on screen. This would be super for introducing the theme of politics with an advanced class.
