Un gars et une fille – au téléphone

We are still doing telephone conversations in year 10 French. It is hard to make a phone call in a language you are learning. The face and body signals are not there. Any silence defeats you and it can be such an arduous task. I am trying to normalise it for them and they are doing well. I played this clip because Un Gars et une Fille episodes are funny but this one shows normal French people making normal French phone calls and the nature of the video means the patters, vocabulary and expressions are repeated. They did not understand it all, obviously, but we had done enough phone vocabulary for them to appreciate and enjoy this clip and make learning about phone calls more fun and valuable.
