A-level listening task on genetically modified crops, based on a France Télévisions report. Linked video, questions in French and "find the French". This explains clearly what GM is and points to pros and cons. Very good A2 exercise which goes with texts on the A-level page.

A-level listening task linking to a short France Soir/Youtube video on the pros and cons of decriminalising a familiar substance (in case school filters do their thing). Vox pop interviews, note taking in French and vocab finding. Would work well with an article on the same topic from the A-level page.

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?

, Y12-13 (Advanced)

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.

, Y12-13 (Advanced)

A-level listening resource based on a linked presentation from the excellentUniverscience.tv site. This is a very clear explanation of why carbon capture and storage is needed and how it works. There's a vocab list to complete and questions in English to answer. Good for A2 level.

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.

, Y12-13 (Advanced)

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.
