Introduce your intermediate French speakers to the future tense with this plan. The plan is broken up into teacher tasks and student tasks, making it clear and easy to understand. There are also three worksheets included, but only one focuses on the future tense. It appears some of the information comes from the Holt French 3 book.
This teacher guide provides several ideas for how to structure a unit on the futur simple. Start by having your class read the short passage provided about Google. As they read, pupils should categorize verbs by type to highlight verbs used in the future tense. While a few different activities are suggested, consider using the fortune-teller to engage your class. It's simple: pair kids up; one acts as the fortune-teller, and one acts as the client. Obviously both the questions and the answers will be in the future tense!
High schoolers are introduced to the French language.

Twelfth graders in an ESOL class discover where to place the stress in multi-syllable words.

Healthcare varies from one country to the next. Introduce your high schoolers to the healthcare system in France and some of the vocabulary words used to describe one's health. There are several activities detailed in these pages. You could play "Simon Says" with your class, practice the dialogue provided, or create voodoo-like dolls to practice identifying the correct illness according to location. Since sewing an actual voodoo doll is probably not a possibility (as the lesson plan suggests), use paper forms instead.
