Classroom Ideas

Could be used in conjunction with the topic of family. A class might watch the first section, about packing to go away, with a list of eight possible things to take, four of which are featured in the clip; une paire de chaussettes/un pyjama/deux t-shirts/une trousse de toilette/une paire de chaussure/un pantalon/deux livre/les articles de toilette. In the section on introducing the family, the class could have a list of family members that needs to be numbered in chronological order; ma grand-mère (4), mon petit frère (1), mon père ( 5), ma mère (3), mes soeurs (2). Pupils could be asked to find out how to say five further family members, then, in pairs, they could introduce their family members with a photo.
