Refresher French : Summary 5

As usual, we started by the previous week’s vocabulary. Then we practised the past tense (“passé composé”) – initially correcting your homework, and then continuing with the board-game. We didn’t have time to do the song this week, but I will email you the words and a link where to listen to it 😀 Read More…

Refresher French : Summary 4

We started our fourth French class by going over the previous week’s vocabulary. Then we practised the reflexive verbs using the homework – a bit time-consuming but I think useful as everyone had a go at doing reflexive verbs. After that, we started on the past tense (“passé composé”) and we had a go at “Déjeuner du Matin” by Jacques Prévert.

Refresher French – Summary #2

We started the second lesson by going over last week’s summary – a good opportunity to revise questions, negatives, basic verbs… We then corrected the homework and move on to practise some Q&A further by using the game sheet. Finally, we listened to a song and went through the words: “Ce Georges”, a song about a cloned version of Georges Clooney. You can listen to it again here: http://www.teach.edilang.com/chanson-ce-georges/. I have also included the lyrics, which I am emailing to you just now too. If you like the song, you can use it to memorise some vocab and grammar structures! Read More…
