French KS3 / KS4: Interpreting French Verbs

Cap' ou pas cap' sees four British students challenging each other with a series of dares as they holiday in Paris, all with the aim of testing their knowledge of French verbs.

The students take it in turns to dare each other to do things.

They have to identify the verbs in the sentences, before having to correctly interpret and act out whatever the dare is.

This clip is from the series French Grammar for 14-16s.

Teacher Notes

You could set up a challenge similar to that in the film.

Split them into teams and come up with a list of simple challenges.

You can then act as moderator, as each team has to interpret and act on the challenge.

The winner is the team that correctly interprets and completes the challenges set.

Curriculum Notes

This clip is relevant for teaching French at KS3 and KS4 in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and at National 4 and 5 in Scotland.
