Classroom Ideas

Can be used as a listening task as part of the jobs and employment topic, e.g. with multiple-choice questions. Could be used to model an interview with a French business-person, which might then form the basis of a piece of speaking or writing about work experience. Useful for revising the months of the year and for cultural awareness of special days in the French calendar.
