Bonjour! In the last two weeks, we have been working on how to ask questions in French. Here is a video that will help you at home to learn the question phrases with good pronunciation. Remember your accents!
This week (March 19-23), you will have the opportunity to start using these questions in your writing and speaking as we keep working on our mystery of the robbery of “La Lumiere du Desert”. Here is a link to the Royal Ontario Museum’s gems and precious stones department where the story takes place…as well as a picture of the real “Lumiere du desert”!
A la prochaine! 🙂
Mecredi, le 9 fevrier 2018……les jeux Olympiques commencent!
We will be taking a short break from our mystery unit to learn how to enjoy the Olympics in French! Students will create a visual dictionary, learn vocabulary about sports, and create an interview with an Olympic athlete!
Here are some things to do at home:
- Please help your student explore the Olympians by watching some of the Home Team videos from cbc (we do not endorse the Toyota advertisements, but these are great stories!)
2. There are also sports vocabulary games at www.french-games.net. Go to the site, select “Start” and “sports”, then go to “Lessons”.
The program will take your student through a variety of games and activities to explore sports in French!
3. Here is an introductory video to the jeux Olympiques! Listen a few times see how much you understand!
In class, we have been working on 1) describing various rooms in our homes and 2) how to tell time as we build vocabulary for creating our “mystery” play.
www.french-games.net is an excellent and fun resource for learning all kinds of vocabulary. Please try the TIME section. Go to the site, select “start”, then “Time” and “lessons”. If you work your way through the beginner level, try the intermediate! The site also says the French words as you go along. Try to repeat them for practice at home!
Here is a short video to review what we have been doing in class about “les pieces dans la maison”. Enjoy!
A la prochaine!
For those of you who enjoyed the French games during our review classes, here is the link to the game site. Please obtain permission from your parents and/or guardians before going to this site as there are pop up ads. Try a variety of games–they will all help to build your vocabulary and spelling!
Enjoy, et on se verra lundi!
