What is the secret resource that brings pure joy into the MFL classroom?

 

Well, just before we get on to the ‘secret’ resource, it is worth mentioning that the MFL resource market has been transformed over the past ten years.  Hundreds if not thousands of excellent and imaginative resources are available to MFL teachers using songs, games and interactive online software.  MFL teachers everywhere are now fully aware of the positive impact that these resources have on engagement and attainment.

But not everyone knows about this extra resource (the secret one) which is available in every classroom free of charge whenever required.  And this is the resource that adds pure joy!

The secret resource harnesses one of the most powerful resources in human society. It is not restricted to any specific MFL topic and yet can be applied to all of them.

It works brilliantly in MFL classes because spoken language connects people on an emotional level.

After all, we never speak to each other in sterile sentences such as ‘the cat sat on the mat’!

We gossip, we complain, we rejoice, we reflect, we inform, we collaborate, we recount, we congratulate, we sympathise, we encourage, we accuse, we defend, we tell jokes, we brag, we tell stories…..

And when we speak we expect a reaction.

In particular, we expect a reaction from our peers.  And the younger we are, the more importance we attach to the opinion of our peers.

And there you have it!  The power of peer pressure is the FREE resource available to all MFL teachers everywhere, at any time!

Do you dare to unleash its legendary potent force?

Have a go!  Spice up your usual role plays with some of these ideas!

An angry customer with a frustrated travel agent; a stressed out doctor dealing with a hysterical patient; an excited tourist completely misunderstanding directions; an absent minded mad professor in a shop; bank robbers who cannot agree on which is the getaway car; a dentist trying to calm a nervous patient who escapes when he turns his back.

Watch faces light up as pupils experiment with entertaining and being entertained by, their peers – in a foreign language!  See them enthusiastically research material for their own sketches. Watch confidence levels grow and peer relationships improve!

It is pure joy!

And it is free!

Marie – Director of www.singinfrench.com –  Fresh ideas for MFL teachers

Ps  You can see what pure joy looks like in this Pinot The Musical workshop

Pps  demand will be high for the 16 performance of our popular ‘sing along in French’ show Pinot! The Musical – playing at the New Wimbledon Studio Theatre in May and June 2017.   See www.singinfrench.com for details.  Email info@singinfrench.com if you have any questions!

The best resource for learning French is France.

What is the one time you really want learners to talk?

Do our pupils want to communicate? Of course they do. Just listen to them as they come into the classroom and settle down. If we let them, they would never stop talking!

If only we could use that unquenchable urge to talk, and persuade them to do it in French (or German, Spanish etc) instead…

These resources will show you how to begin to get them doing just that. And once they start, you won’t be able to stop them! To hear yourself actually using your new language to achieve a real outcome is highly motivating and makes you eager to learn more.

Let’s face it – some text book language can be uninspiring: “What’s this? It’s a pencil.” What colour is it? It’s red.” How can we help learners to go beyond ‘textbook language’ and use their newly learned vocabulary to ask questions, to ask for help, to say what’s wrong: “I don’t have a pencil. Can I borrow a rubber?”

So why not teach classroom language by enabling learners to say what they really want and need to say?

Easy to say, perhaps, but how is it done? If you have never done this before, and if also you are a non-specialist teacher of languages, how can you make a start? This new set of classroom language resources from highly regarded MLG Publishing (MiniFlashcards) aims to show you how to plan a progressive programme and provides you with a bank of resources for you to use with learners.

Here, in attractive cartoon pictures and soundfiles, you will find examples of commonly occurring language from which you and your learners can choose items to become familiar with through fun activities and games. These will provide a firm foundation for them to build on as they progress, and to grow in confidence as they begin to see using the language can make things happen.

It doesn’t happen all at once, of course, but a phrase a day, or even a phrase a week, soon builds up into a sizeable body of knowledge and skill.

If you would like to try out this approach simply click on our website and download the sample pictures and activities – at www.mlgpublishing.com and select Ici On Parle Français  (Main Volume or Primary Version). Or email us atmailto:mlg@mlgpublishing.com

How can your school avoid the ‘learning a language’ trap?

Teachers can be under-confident when teaching foreign languages in the classroom because they do not have the language skills. What’s the most effective way of supporting your staff in the teaching of French, Spanish or German?

Avoiding the trap …
Have you been in the scenario where the teachers have been informed that they have to teach a language and seen the panic on their faces? Suddenly they have to read, write, speak and teach it to the children. Most teachers race on line to hunt through the mixed bag of resources.  Imagine their surprise if they could be provided with a proven resource that enables them to teach a language, they do not know, effectively.

Finding the resource …
What is the right resource? A resource which gives instant lessons, lesson plans and games, with sound, which are effective and fun. A resource which promotes linguistic confidence.

EDpaX offers …
Lessons that develop the teaching of French, Spanish or German in the Primary classroom.

What is the best way to take students from a predicted lower grade up to the achievement of an A* at GCSE?

Not surprisingly one of the best ways of helping students in French to get a higher grade is to give them a clear summary of the criteria the exam boards use, written in a student friendly language.

And that was what this booklet gives.  The authors have analysed the writing and the speaking criteria of various exam boards and have come up with a simple and clear summary of these criteria written in a student friendly language. These criteria have been divided into four sections; each section corresponding to a GCSE level while at the end of the booklet students can find a very useful list of recommended idioms and high level expressions.

Additionally the booklet includes the conjugation of the 50 most used French verbs, including the modal verbs, into different tenses.

This is followed by different language structures which the students can use to develop their writing.

The use of this booklet is proven to improve students’ levels not only in writing and speaking, but also in listening and reading.

How to get A* in French? is published as a download so that you can receive immediately a copy onto your computer which you can print out for colleagues and your students as often as you want.

There are sample pages from the book at http://pdf.firstandbest.co.uk/authordownloadsamples/T1815samples.pdf and you can order it at  http://shop.firstandbest.co.uk/product_info.php?cPath=76_125&products_id=785

The price is £10 plus VAT (the VAT can be reclaimed in most cases by the school).

How to get A* in French? is published by First and Best in Education, part of the Hamilton House group.  If you have any enquiries you can call 01536 399 011, or email sales@firstandbest.co.uk or write to us at First and Best, Hamilton House, Earlstrees Ct., Earlstrees Rd., Corby, Northants NN17 4HH.

Arranging Your French Trip

With the busy period of exams drawing to a close, we think it’s time for our hardworking teachers to breathe a sigh of relief and start thinking about a trip that both you and your class can look forward to.

One of the best resources for learning French, and experiencing French culture is surely France itself; however, we also offer an exciting range of on-site adventure and team-building activities, perfectly designed for those tricky new year / new class transitions.

For more information, please visit: www.chateau-beaumont.co.uk

We have been organising trips for schools, to suit any budget, for nearly 20 years; we are fully registered with the British Activity Providers’ Association (BAPA) and hold the Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge.

Dans Ma Chambre

Are you tired of creating your own PowerPoint presentations, only to find that you are forced to use uninspiring cartoons or internet images to convey your messages?  These images are often just not quite right.  Well, no more!  Our presentations use authentic resources in their proper French context.  These particular resources should be used initially with 11-12 year olds during their first year of learning French but then can subsequently be used as a revision tool for older students if necessary.

The presentation should be used to teach learners to describe their bedroom and also to use various (5) prepositions to say where items are in relation to other furniture.  These materials are to be used within the context of learning about the house/home in French.

The resources are multi-faceted in that they are used interactively from the beginning of the PowerPoint presentation to teach the required vocabulary to the class in a fun way.  Students work in pairs, individually and as a whole class throughout the lesson using visual, auditory and kinaesthetic activities to engage and motivate them.  The pace can be fast or slowed down as necessary for the students to assimilate the required lexis and can be used equally well with SEN learners.

They will enjoy the variety of activities, the competition, 2 written exercises and use the 4 skills of listening, reading, speaking and writing in this lesson.  These resources have been developed by an experienced language teacher, used with a class and have consequently been proven to be effective, fun and engaging.

Dans Ma Chambre  26 Powerpoint/slides plus 4 word documents, 2 worksheets and 2 answer sheets.  £ 24.99 (including VAT £29.99  )  Order Code : H9232

Once purchased the CD can be freely copied and networked throughout the school.

What is the most effective way of attuning your younger pupils’ ears to the French language?

Earworms, stuck-song syndrome, sticky music, and cognitive itch are all terms used to describe when a song gets stuck in your head – and, although defined, it can’t quite be explained.

So how can you use this scientific mystery to your advantage so your pupils will pick up their French language learning more readily as they advance through the curriculum?

The answer is with Petites Étoiles – a comprehensive resource which uses rhymes and songs to introduce your Reception to Year 2 pupils to French language learning. So when they start to learn French more formally, they will have already internalised how it sounds.

Petites Étoiles provides lesson plans, activities, and ideas based on 18 popular topics (toys, food, animals, celebrations…), with each unit focusing on a rhyme or a song to aid the pronunciation of words and to make learning more memorable.

The accompanying disc also contains video clips, as well as a huge bank of reproducible resources, IWB games, and much more. The practical activities are play-oriented and range from role-playing and miming to phonics games and mask-making.

Furthermore, Petites Étoiles has a clear and easy-to-use layout and provides a huge amount of practical support for teachers which means that it can be used by both French specialist teachers and teachers with limited knowledge of the French language.

You can order Petites Étoiles in a variety of ways, including:

How can you ensure that the vocabulary of some topics isn’t forgotten as quickly as it has been learned?

There’s a general consensus that the most effective way of teaching French vocabulary is to approach it one topic at a time – so that once the vocabulary of one topic is learnt, it can be used comprehensively and to good effect.

However, there is a problem. The vocabulary of some topics can be forgotten as quickly as they have been learnt if the opportunity doesn’t arise for your pupils to cement the knowledge shortly after learning it.

With this in mind and the 2016 Olympics looming, we thought what better time to introduce your pupils to vocabulary and grammar revolving around the topic of sport. This way, many of your pupils will be able to relate their newly learnt French vocabulary to a topic of conversation which is likely to dominate most households this summer.

Which is why we have produced Olympics 2016 – French Topic Book.

Furthermore, with the excitement that always surrounds the Olympics, your pupils will be enthused and looking forward to learning more complex concepts of French with which to express their views about the Games.

Indeed, the Olympics is not only a topic that offers a wide range of vocabulary revolving around sports, but it is also likely to enhance your pupils’ knowledge of other topic areas, such as countries around the world.

Olympics 2016 – French Topic Book is a comprehensive resource which will keep your pupils occupied and eager from now (or after their assessments) until the end of term.

It contains a wealth of activities which will enhance your pupils’ French speaking, reading, writing, and listening, including: activity sheets, sentence building activities, surveys, flash cards, match the words, word search, crossword puzzles, Loto Cards, and much more.

We have also included ideas for incorporating French into PE lessons – why not have a French themed sports day this year?

To see the complete contents of Olympics 2016 – French Topic Book, click here.

All the activities are photocopiable, although if you’d prefer to print the activities out (rather than photocopy them) the resource can instead be supplied as an eBook.

Furthermore, the resource also contains answer pages so is great for teachers who have limited knowledge of French (or the Olympics).

You can order the Olympic 2016 – French Topic Book in a variety of ways, including:

How to get Top Marks in Edexcel French IGCSE Writing Questions

The essay writing questions might seem daunting at first but this is one section of the paper where you, as the candidate, are in control. As long as you answer the questions and cover all the bullet points, you can decide what to write.

This is an easy way to score marks, and the writing sections of the paper count for 30 marks (10 for the shorter writing task and 20 for the longer writing task) which is 25% of the total marks. If you do well in this part of the paper it can make all the difference in being able to move up the grade boundaries.

This pack will explain what is required for the two writing questions for the Edexcel French IGCSE specification. Sample questions will be looked at, with tips for essay techniques, followed by sample essays, with examiners’ comments. Writing tasks from each of the topic areas will be looked at, for both the shorter and longer writing tasks.

The five topic areas are:

1. Home and Abroad
2. Education and Employment
3. House, home and daily routine
4. The modern world and the environment
5. Social activities, fitness and health

56 pages – Price £39.99 (excluding VAT)

What is an effective strategy for ensuring progression in French throughout KS2?

For your pupils to make swift progress in French, it’s important that they are not only learning topic vocabulary, but also grammar. Better still, it is important that there is an effective strategy for combining both French vocabulary and French grammar to enable them to create their own sentences.

Which is why Brilliant Publications has developed Learn French with Luc et Sophie – a two-part series of engaging French storybooks suitable for children learning French at KS2.

Each series includes 14 units, 14 songs to reinforce vocabulary and 14 storybooks which feature a young brother (Luc) and sister (Sophie) and their friends and family. The stories provide an enjoyable, stress-free way to learn the rhythm of the language, intonation, and pronunciation.

The stories use simple sentence and language structures and offer the opportunity for your pupils to learn key vocabulary in context and to phrase things as a native speaker would.

Furthermore, the storybooks in each series are available both as mini 8-page books and as IWB files which enables them to be read individually, in small groups, or as a whole class. This makes it easy to present written and spoken language together so that children can see the links between them.

We have also devised a number of accompanying activities and games which will encourage your pupils to use the language naturally and without going through lengthy and complex thought processes.

The resource can be used by a teacher with limited knowledge of the language, made possible by translations of the text in the teacher’s book and audio files of all vocabulary and texts as well as the stories and songs. There are also self-assessment sheets so you can easily monitor progress and ensure full coverage of the Foreign Language Programmes of Study.

You can order Learn French with Luc et Sophie 1ère Partie for Years 3-4 and Learn French with Luc et Sophie 2ème Partie for Years 5-6 in a variety of ways, including:

Expand students’ cultural knowledge and improve linguistic ability

Current events and target-language culture have become an ever-increasing presence on MFL specifications over the years. And why shouldn’t they? It goes without saying that those with an affinity for target-language culture have greater motivation to learn the language. And ensuring students are in the loop when it comes to current events and contemporary issues is a sure-fire way to spark this passion.

With the trend set to continue with the impending accreditation of the 2016 GCSE and A Level specifications, no doubt you’re wondering how to ensure that students are sufficiently in the know without compromising on essential language practice.

Fortunately, we have created two fantastic new ranges designed specifically to meet this need!

Introducing Differentiated Topical Articles for GCSE and Topical Articles with Exercises for AS, both available for French, Spanish and German:

A series of up-to-date articles based around the latest events in target-language countries
Activities specifically designed to test the skills needed at GCSE and AS
All articles and activities inspired by the topics and requirements of the new specs – including translation!

Le Tour De France in Your school 2016

Enjoy   Listen   Speak    Learn
LE TOUR DE FRANCE
French Theatre in Your School in 2016.


Enjoy

Positive French for Year 7, 8 and 9 French students. A live French theatre performance in your school will encourage students to enjoy learning French. They will love the humour while watching the energetic and visual tale of the trials and tribulations of George and Chantalle on their quest for their dreams.

Listen
Listening becomes easy when the actions are linked to the words. Students can recognise similar words in the English language and French words they have been taught in the classroom. Repetition of keywords and actions results in a selection of mental triggers that help move the phrases from their short term into their long term memory.

Speak
When students are encouraged to interact with the characters in French, students can overcome their shyness, actively joining in with the performance and feeling more confident when returning to the classroom.

Learn
The performance GRABS the attention of the students’ minds so much that they are more willing to learn French and are amazed how cool French is (even the Year 9’s!).

This is achieved via the highly visual nature of the performance, involving mime, music and circus skills.

(Inspired by discussion and comments from two students, aged 10 and 15, in two different North Yorkshire schools , one year after a performance of Bon Voyage.)

How to get A* in Spanish?

What is the best way to take students from a predicted lower grade up to the achievement of an A* at GCSE?

As with the French version of this book the author has analysed the writing and the speaking criteria of various exam boards and has come up with a simple and clear summary of these criteria written in a student friendly language. These criteria have been divided into four sections; each section corresponding to a GCSE level while at the end of the booklet students can find a very useful list of recommended idioms and high level expressions.

Additionally the booklet includes the conjugation of the 50 most used Spanish verbs, including the modal verbs, into different tenses.

This is followed by different language structures which the students can use to develop their writing. 

The use of this booklet is proven to improve students’ levels not only in writing and speaking, but also in listening and reading.

How to get A* in Spanish? is published as a download so that you can receive immediately a copy onto your computer which you can print out for colleagues and your students as often as you want.
