Just as I expected.
Just found "sorciere" for which THREE TIMES in a mock controlled assessment task.
I had the following today.
As-tu des animaux/ J'ai midi (I have none/noon)
'Su es bonita jengibre' talking about his girlfriend.
For a bit of fun, my year 9s were trying to translate staff names into French- I love Monsieur imperméable-en-pneu (Mr McIntyre).
Anyone recommend a good GCSE dictionary?
Having just looked through some German scripts, I have an end of term quiz for you. You may award yourself one mark for each sentence whose intended meaning you can work out , and a bonus point if you can guess which word the student was looking up in the dictionary (for the words in italics).
1. In die Krankenhaus ich musste helfen geduldig.
2. In der Zukunft ich mangel zu Nachhilfestunden, weil es [gut bezahlt ist.]
3. Ich nahmer das Taxi, weil es ist sehr schnell.
4. Mein halb Bruder ist der Bauer und kleine.
5. Meiner Mutter ist sehr streng aber sehr Jahrmarkt.
6. Jack liebt es auf der Schaukel und die Folien zu spielen.
7. Was ist Deutschland gern?
Looking forward to your interpretations ...
obtenir habillé en haut - to get dressed up
marais s'adoucit - marsh mellows ( obviously couldn't spell marshmallows !)

Year 7 German Ich bin= I'm rubbish
I was stumped by 'le garcon rayon' until told that it meant 'the boy spoke'
Nice to see this amusing thread get to 300!
Saw this ina piece of French writing Je vais a vachement école. (Cowley School)
On the theme of animals...I once asked a French kid Have you any pets? whilst teaching in Rouen. She replied, I am a hamster. When I said that this was wrong, she apologised and changed it to I am a guinea pig!
Je testament aller prep ville ....always a good one
je see to be 15
Siegen - word for word the conversation I have ..... think it must be the MFL teacher script
When I first started teaching, which was last century, we were looking at the verb "to be". Trying to get the students to understand this in English and how it varied I asked them to say out the verb in the present tense in English.One girl called Erica enthusiastically raised her hand and said
It was a school in Devon ......
Iknow it well
