Worksheets for Téléfrançais, Beginning French Video Series ~ Listening Practice

Description

Looking for a way to engage beginning students in French in the language? I spent several years looking for a show that was entirely in French, but that was suitable for beginners. I found that in Téléfrançais.

Téléfrançais is a Canadian TV show designed for kids learning French. The 30 ten-minute episodes are available for free on YouTube. These worksheets help students more easily follow along, better comprehend the language of the all-French show, retain more of what they hear, and stay more focused.

WHAT'S INCLUDED

--A single, black-and-white PDF file formatted for 8.5 x 11-inch paper

--A half-page worksheet for each of the 30 Téléfrançais episodes (printed two per page)

--An answer key that appears directly after each worksheet

 

THE CONTENT

--The worksheets are designed for native speakers of English who can read and write

--They were designed for beginning French learners who have been studying French for a few months

--Each worksheet includes around 12 questions

--Question types are primarily multiple choice, matching, and short-answer questions with 1-2 word answers

--Questions and answers are mix of French and English

--It works well to introduce Téléfrançais after a few months of French I. I started them in the second quarter of the year.

--Students should be able to read and write comfortably to use these worksheets

 

MORE ABOUT TELEFRANÇAIS

The French-Canadian TV show has thirty 10-minute episodes available for free on YouTube. The show is dated, but it's one of my favorite resources for teaching French. I show it to my junior high and high school French I students starting in about the second quarter. As the school year goes on, they inevitably start singing along with the theme song. They always groan when they first see Pilote. They talk about how they miss Sophie when she leaves the show. Like I said, it's dated, but it engages students and really does help them learn French. And it's free!

 

I made this set of worksheets to help students follow along with the show. With these worksheets, students are able to better follow the action and language. I have used them for years, and they have been a hit with other teachers as well!

Spanish Language Alphabet Printable Set ~ Boho / Neutrals / Modern ~ High-Frequency Vocabulary

Description

Looking for Spanish-language educational decor? This item is an instant digital download in a boho / neutral color palette. It is designed to print on regular 8.5"x11" printer-sized paper, with one page for each letter in the alphabet, including ñ and ll, for a total of 28 pages. It comes to you as a zipped file of .PNG images, which offers the best colors and image quality.

Unlike other Spanish alphabet products, I chose high-frequency vocabulary from the most common 2,000 Spanish words as much as possible when making this item. The images are designed to be clear without features that would confuse their meaning, and the font was chosen to be readable even by young learners.

I taught Spanish at the middle and high school level for several years. This item is great for those levels, as well as for elementary school, preschool, or home school. Please note, this purchase is for a digital download only. My digital downloadables are NOT editable. Variation in the colors of the posters may occur when printed, though this has to do with your monitor and the printer you use to print them.  Products from Blue And Gold Language / Carrie E.
