Frenchteacher.net is the place to go for teaching resources, ideas, updates about France and information on MFL teaching. It's especially good for A Level. I'd hate to be without it - it's well worth the very reasonable subscription!
For me, Frenchteacher.net has been a valuable source of material for several years. I have made regular use of the reliable and focussed AS/A2 materials, adapting exercises here and there. The reading articles are invariably appropriate and carefully exploited, with searching and open-ended questions. The grammar sections have provided me with ‘emergency’ packages for use in class and for independent study. My only regret is that I have not always explored the excellent links to other resource banks as fully as I might. I get a real sense of a holistic approach to language learning: comprehension, grammar and good writing and speaking practice are treated as complementary skills. I find this very refreshing; we can all spend too much time focussing on the very special and sometimes arbitrary demands of an exam paper. I wish Steve every success for the continued development of the website; he has the experience and ‘savoir-faire’ to provide terrific support to French teachers in all sectors and at all levels.
I have been using frenchteacher.net for some years now and find it an invaluable resource, especially for A-level teaching. The A-level materials closely cover the required topics and provide a wealth of productive language practice. The materials at all levels show an imaginative approach to set topics and the texts with activities are accessible and interesting, with worthwhile tasks. There is a good range of grammar drills and activities which give the necessary practice which course books often fail to provide.
Very rich, very intelligently done , therefore, a lot of amazing material to use in class. I highly recommended your site to all my students.
We have been using 'frenchteacher.net' at Ashcroft Technology Academy since July 2012. We have found the resources an invaluable accompaniment for our exam classes but, in particular, for our A level and IB classes, where there are excellent grammar sheets for all levels and authentic reading comprehensions. I especially like the Teacher's Guide which serves as a checklist for a recall on games in the MFL classroom as well as ways to teach film and literature. It is, of course, excellent value for money and would recommend it to any language teacher who is short of time.
I use frenchteacher.net for my lessons all the time and I find it very useful because it uses up to date articles and the exercises are interesting and relevant.
Frenchteacher.net is, without any doubt, where I most frequently seek resources and where I always find very high-quality materials and inspirational ideas for all Key Stage level language learners. The resources are very clearly organised into topic and level categories and include an impressively wide range of activities. From PowerPoint presentations to worksheets, the content spans formal grammar explanations and literature notes, topical reading comprehensions, games and useful links. Especially to my liking, and in contrast to many other websites offering Modern Foreign Languages resources, Frenchteacher.net offers an extensive collection of grammar-related resources – even at the most advanced level - which provide seemingly endless practice and consolidation of classroom teaching. I only wish Spanishteacher.net existed as well!
I have been using frenchteacher.net for some years now and I find it indispensable and wouldn't want to be without it. I find the grammar drills especially useful. The reading comprehensions are great for classwork, ready made homework or cover work. The A-level work is also extremely good. I would thoroughly recommend this site.
I very much enjoy your worksheets for homework assignments and I have found the reading material at Y12-13 level invaluable when working with IB Diploma students
Your site has brilliant resources. It really is worth every penny of the £20. Thank you.
