Extra French

Nice little series which is spoken at a reasonable pace and has captioning to facilitate understanding. This is suitable for senior secondary students. The videos would take half a lesson and so you could do some extra work around them or change the lesson to something completely different.

Et en plus , je parle français

Moi aussi! French is very widely spoken throughout the world and the video makes a very valid point . We all haves skills and expertise in so many different areas…and then we speak other languages as well. That is how it is in 2017.

Bonne année 2017

Je vous souhaite une bonne et heureuse année. Merci pour le soutien de ce blog. J’en suis très reconnaissante. Club de français a partagé cette vidéo sur mon Facebook. 2017 commence bien!

Les jeux olympiques de Rio en 2016

The video introduces the Rio games very nicely in French so that students will get an idea of the vocabulary. You can find a fiche pédagogique here. If you go on Pinterest and search you will find boards like these ones which will give you plenty of ideas and activities. You can top it off with the official brochure here.

Folle, folle ,folle

Great song to do with students when you are doing the weather. Very few words, clear  pronunciation and a tune which has them singing along easily. Une pluine est une petite pluie – that misty rain you get sometimes. The song and lyrics are very atmospheric! You can find the lyrics here.

Barbe bleue

Barbe Bleue is a fairytale by Charles Perrault. These days it is probably not suitable for children . Listening to tales , though, is a very good way to learn a language and improve pronunciation. Pierre reads it really clearly and there is the text , podcast and an exercise on his site français avec Pierre. All of this supports language learning.

If you prefer something lighter then you can try La Princesse au Petit Pois on the Lire et Récréer site.
