One of the things with learning French is you have to get your mouth around sound combinations you are not used to. This tongue twister (virelangue) about the archiduchesse has been a big hit in my classes. The students love trying to say it. My year nines have built an archiduchesse whom they introduced to the class. They are now working on her daily routine. All of this is practising daily routine vocabulary, introductions vocabulary, clothing vocabulary and then drawing on the vocabulary they have learnt from elsewhere. They are really enjoying it. I have created a storify to support their learning and when they saw it, they saw how important les chaussettes de l’archiduchesse sont -elles sèches ou archisèches? was to French speaking people.
