Language and Level (intermediate or advanced class): Advanced
Class theme/topics discussed: Proverbs
Goal of the class: Make the students learn some French proverbs that can be really useful in everyday French speaking.
How did you structure the class? The first part of the class ~40 min consisted in the students trying to reconnect beginnings and ends of 30 proverbs that I had selected for them, cut in two and mixed. The second part consisted in explanations and playing little scenes to make the other students guess a proverb.
What technology, media or props did you use? (internet resources, playmobiles, handouts, etc.)
I used 30 proverbs cut in two.
What worked well in this class? What did not work?
It was a lot of fun. I think the students really loved it. Proverbs are an important and very interesting part of a language. They asked that I sent them the list. Also the skits were really fun
How could this class be improved/ modified?
I had no problem whatsoever with all the bits of paper and in the end I think everyone had fun.
If you have a more detailed lesson plan, please attach it below (OK to use target language for that). Please attach any handouts as well.
Inspired by this class. But with an original set of proverbs.
