For my “mise en train” in my combined grade 11 /12 Core French class today, I decided to show a video from the website TV5 Monde on “La Bretagne”. It is from a series on the site called Ça bouge en France! The series even comes with worksheets already prepared! How great is that?! The “fiches” are based on the CEFR and come with activities for A2 and B1, mostly. Teaching suggestions and answer keys are provided. I only did the first 4 activities and my students were able to do them all! I was so happy because I wanted to challenge them, but not discourage them.
I really enjoy introducing culture into my lessons. I just feel that it’s not possible to teach students a language without teaching them about the culture. To me, they are intertwined.
I hope you have the opportunity to explore TV5 Monde and find activities that suit your needs. It’s fun to see what they have available.
À demain, mes amis!
