Different registers of language #2
How did you pick this theme or topic?
I wanted to keep working on this since there’s a lot of activities possible
How did you present the material? (Handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
How did students react?
They reacted very well.
Did they engage with each other and you?
What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
Please attach a copy.
Below is the plan I had with me in class.
Would you recommend this activity for a future class?
Yes, it was very productive
1. Show Aristochats (extracts on daily motion)
→ which register is used by which character?
2. Dialogue – 20 min
→ creating a dialogue using the different registers and words seen in the previous class
3. Luchini – 15 min
→ give them the fable, talk about Jean de la Fontaine, moral… do they know him? Other fables?
Le Corbeau et le Renard
→ Read together the French version
→ show the verlan version that French actor Luchini recited on tv
