Ever since I discovered a website called Fotobabble, I’ve just been dying to try it in my classes.  The problem is the lack of access to computer labs in my school.   Sigh…

Fotobabble is basically a website that allows you to upload a photo and then to record yourself talking about the photo.  The possibilities are endless!  Students can describe the photo (using their adjectives, l’imparfait), talk about what is happening / happened (present and past verb tenses) or make predictions on what will happen (critical thinking skills, future tense).  What a great tool for increasing oral communication in French!

Here is a great article that talks about how to use Fotobabble in education.

Thanks for reading!



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.
