To help learn the vocabulary related to asking and giving directions I created laminated cards for my French Phase 1-2 students. I love the multiple possibilities offered by card activities:
Here are my students testing each other with the cards.
Please see below the document I used to create my cards. I hope you find it useful!
Further to this, we completed several reading, listening and writing activities in which the students practised both understanding, and giving, directions. These activities mostly came from the unit <<Pardon Madame>> in the text book Métro 4 Vert, which is an old book but still a very useful one! Once the students had done sufficent practice in pairs, they had a formative assessment in which they had to provide me with directions to places in town (using the map from Métro 4 Vert), and then they had to ask me directions using the question <<où est...?>>.
