I have started a new school and am to teach french one afternoon a week to all the upper junior classes. They have had some very mediocre (according to both staff -inc head- and kids) french teaching so far which has resulted in many of them being turned off by the subject. Bascially I'd like some ideas from anyone with similar experience on how to re-motivate them and also advice on where to start. Should I go with the basics? Revision? I really do not know how much they know and how well they know it but don't want to bore them by covering the same ground!!! I think they will enjoy it once they start getting into it as children have always enjoyed my lessons before as I have many IWB resources and ideas, but it is how to ensure they are enthusiastic from lesson 1 when I'm not sure where to pitch it!
