Classroom Ideas

Can be used as a listening task on the topic of sports and hobbies, allowing students to identify sporting activities and also reasons for doing sport. Could be followed up by peer interviews about sporting habits, with students giving their own reasons for (not) doing sport. These could be easily differentiated; from simple responses, e.g. 'c'est relaxant' to more complex structures, e.g. 'parce que ça me détend'.
