The In my current unity of inquiry with my French Phase 1 class we are working on the skill of accent and how it impacts our communication of messages. In this unit we practise dialogues in the following locations around the community:
We are now looking at conversations that we have at the market. I love teaching about the market in France because it is so culturally important. The song <<Marchés de Provence>> by Gilbert Bécaud. The lyrics of the song conjure up a wonderful image of a beautiful, sunny market place full of children dancing and laughing. The song also includes key vocabulary on foods and quantities that are included in out unit of inquiry. There is a wonderful old video on YouTube that also features Brigitte Bardot and the gap-fill activity that I use with my students is below.
