Classroom Ideas

The class could watch the clip and try to answer the multiple choice comprehension questions: 1) What day of the week does Olivier help his parents? (Thursday/Friday/Saturday) 2) How old is Olivier? (13/12/11) 3) What is Olivier’s dad called? (Jean-Marc/Jean-Pierre/Jean-Paul) 4) What does Olivier like best to eat? (prawns/salad/cakes) 5) How many people are booking for the restaurant? (3/4/2) 6) On which day does the riding instructor look after small children? (Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday) 7) How old is the little sister who helps too? (8/7/6). Students could find out if anyone in the class helps their parents with a business and interview them in English. They could then write a short article about what they discovered.
