I've did a survey with my Year 9s a couple of weeks a go asking them what kind of things they would like to learn in their final few weeks of French. They are the low ability group (only about 14 in the group - when they're all present!) and none of them (disappointingly!) are taking French in Year 10 - so I thought this would be a good way to improve behaviour and interest. They mentioned 'Games, computers, swear words (although I told them this wouldn't be happening!), films' amongst other things. The first task on my new SoW was the game aspect... I had pupils create their own board games and then play them for a short while (all French related) and a prize was given to the best one. This allowed them to work in pairs, become more 'practical' and still use the language they ad learnt over the past few years. They loved it. My next step on the new SoW is to have a lesson on slang and texttalk - something which I think they will relate to greatly. I have been researching slang and have found a few good phrases (some of which are quite close to the bone!!) which I could show them. I just wondered if anyone knows of any good phrases which pupils would love? I also would love to know some Text talk phrases.... for example - BJR is bonjour I know I can find these via google and French friends of mine but whilst I'm writing I may as well ask for any good suggestions that anyone knows? Incidently, I am planning on teaching a lesson about typical stereotypes found in the Asterix comics and then showing them one of thes films with additional tasks. As well as a French menu/cafe role-play lesson with foods for them to try out ... Thanks for your help.
