Ça bouge en France!

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!


About Mme Martin

I am a high school French teacher in Ontario, Canada. I've been a teacher for the last 14 years and I love what I do. I am always looking for ways to improve my teaching by learning from my colleagues, reading, attending conferences and workshops. I also completed a Masters of Education degree, specializing in Second Language Acquisition. My goal is to increase students' oral fluency in French and I would like to share this journey with you in the hopes that you will find new ideas and be inspired to do the same. I will let you know what I try in my classes and what works and what doesn't. I hope you will find a wealth of ideas to use in your class.
