Classroom Ideas

Can be used as a listening task on the topic of family members, or to model a speaking task about people's marital status, e.g. pupils could role-play a member of their own family and talk about whether they are married, how many children they have etc. Could also be used to introduce or reinforce the formal 'vous' form of address, or simply as a cultural insight into marriage traditions in France.
