My main aim was to create some intermediate French GCSE listening practice on the topic of ‘ma ville’.
Mainly, as revision for my Year 11 GCSE French students, as part of the AQA syllabus.
My favourite moments are when she bats her eyelashes at the camera.
French listening practice was on my mind this week!
Pour les gens sportif, il y a un nouveau stade fantastique qui s’appelle ‘Reebok Stadium’ ou on peut regarder les grands match de foot.
Mardi dernier je suis alle au stade, j’ai regarde le match Bolton contre Manchester United, Bolton a gagne 2-0 c’etait super.Her experience of film school in Brussels was an old boys’ network; so she left.‘I was born in Brussels and that’s the way I see things – frontally and straight’, she said.The intermediate listening French lesson comes with an MP3 audio file, a transcript, as well as seven activities to exploit the theme.The tasks include listening comprehension questions, vocabulary/phrases acquisition, as well as speaking and writing activities, for example.I remember being shown in my French A-level class, together with reading Marcel Proust, Guy de Maupassant and Jean-Paul Sartre; I was taught the male French literary cannon.I remember thinking: where are the women intellectuals, filmmakers, and artists?If you don’t wish to use the material for listening practice on ‘ma ville’, why not use the transcript and questions as a reading lesson for silent lessons or as cover lessons?My French GCSE students really loved it and really appreciated that the village mentioned in the audio, in Champagne-Ardenne is the twin town of Holbeach, a village near us!Speaking exams are looming and all we have done lately is focus on getting through the material and speaking!We have photo cards, role plays and general conversation questions coming out of our ears.
