Grammar “y” and “en”
How did you pick this theme or topic?
On Tuesday, one of the students asked me about the use of ‘y’ and ‘en’ in French, and I couldn’t explain correctly so I thought it would be better to have a lesson about it.
How did you present the material? (Handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
Lesson on the white board
Exercises found on the internet
How did students react?
They reacted well, they understood and scored very well in the exercises.
Did they engage with each other and you?
It was mostly a grammar class so they didn’t really speak to each other, but asked me questions.
What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
Lessons found on the internet and in the French workbook

Below is the plan I had with me in class.
Would you recommend this activity for a future class?
Yes, but I would try to find an exercise where they would need to use ‘y’ and ‘en’ and talk to each other.
1. Grammar ‘y/en’ – 30 min
2. Project – 20 min
⇒ Start thinking about the plot, the history
⇒ Can do it in English
⇒ Then they have to make a summary in French
