Video listening - Trotro joue à cache-cache. Trotro cartoon with French subtitles. Good for home vocabulary, rooms and prepositions. (FYI Trotro is a cartoon donkey!)
I have posted a one page guide on how to use the texts with exercises on the site. This may be very useful to novice teachers and of interest to experienced practitioners who may appreciate a new angle. It is a free sample and also on the Y10-11 and A-level pages for reference.
First resource of 2014! Video listening task on the Eiffel Tower. True/false/not mentioned. Easy advanced level or could be used with a very quick intermediate group.
I have updated and added new exercises to an article on violence in the French suburbs. I shall in the coming weeks be updating or removing a number of texts with exercises which may have become outdated.
Beginner listening task: La famille Berrow. Worksheet linked to a BBC video. This may only work for British users (BBC copyright).

Another Peppa Cochon video with worksheet for intermediate level (Y10-11). This one is called Une chasse au trésor. Gap fill and sentence reordering. I like the clarity of the language in these videos.

New Peppa Pig video listening worksheet. Polly va en vacances. I've put this on the Y9 page, but you could use it with older or younger students. The exercise is to tick off the true sentences. Always check the links work if you choose to use listening sheets.
