How did you pick this theme or topic?
I wanted to introduce the project and I also wanted to refresh their minds about food vocabulary + I wanted to see what French dishes they knew.
How did you present the material? (Handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
How did students react?
They reacted well. They were rather competitive for the game which took long because there were a lot of words/images to match. And they were interested in the typical dishes.
Did they engage with each other and you?
Yes they engaged with each other during the game, and with me during the slideshow.
What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
Please attach a copy.
Below is the plan I ahd with me in class
Would you recommend this activity for a future class?
Yes, but I would select the images/words so they wouldn’t spend that much time on the game.
1. Game with pairs – 25 min
⇒ They have to find the right pair (make a picture match a word)
2. PowerPoint presentation – 20 min
⇒ About French typical dishes
