I have uploaded another sentence builder-based lesson plan to the Y9 collection. This one is on healthy living. There is a sentence builder, a gapped sentence builder and a detailed sequence of possible activities. This would work with Y9 and Y10. CEFR A2.
A task-based 'Ask the experts' lesson about Antoine Dupont, French rugby star. CEFR A2/B1. Good for a high-performing Y10-11 class.
A class survey task on favourite drinks. Same format as previous surveys. A good opportunity to use some task-based methodology. CEFR A1.
A text and exercises about the September 2023 decision to experiment with school uniform in some French schools. Text, vocab to find, bullet-point summary, oral summary, written summary, oral debate. CEFR B2.
A class survey activity: which French dessert do you prefer? A set of 9 slides with teacher instructions and a sheet for students. Surveys like this are a great way to bring in some task-based methodology for beginners. CEFR A1.
Video listening. A 7m 47 video analysis of La Haine. The task is to complete a gap-fill with the help of words in boxes. There are no captions, but the language is clear and the video shows clips from the movie. Good for Y13 students studying the movie. Answers given. CEFR B2.
A short article about how fake news can become a business. Text with a recent French example of a fake news story spread on TikTok, vocab to find, true/false/not mentioned, lexical work, discussion questions, sentences to create. CEFR B1. Good for Y12.
A text and exercises about the ban on wearing the 'abaya' in French schools from September 2023. Vocab to find, questions on the text and general discussion questions. A great topic for Y13 discussion. CEFR B2.
A simple oral starter: the classic "Two truths and a lie." I've put this on the Y9 page, but you could do this with almost any level as a simple starter, filler or plenary. CEFR A2 up.
A text about immigration in France in 2022, based on figures from Insee. Includes historical trends and detailed facts and figures. Vocab to find and correct sentences to identify. Adult learners should find this interesting too. CEFR B1/2.
