FR F07 INT – Phonetics and reading

Phonetics : sounds « s » and « ch »
Reading of “La bicyclette et le vélo”

How did you pick this theme or topic?
It was the first time we worked on these subjects.

How did you present the material? (Handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
Handouts (the projector did not work), repetition, and then individual reading of the text, then group work, then general discussion.

How did students react?
They loved the phonetics exercise. Then they enjoyed the text I think, which described typical characteristics of people who use bikes in France. This is a poetical text, and they felt what the author wanted people to feel. They all knew how to describe (for example) the typical student in France.

Did they engage with each other and you?
Yes they did!

What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)

Please attach a copy.

Would you recommend this activity for a future class?
Yes, but I would organize it better so that we have to time to do a follow up activity which consists in asking them to imagine something typical of their country and have them describe it.
