French Antonyms - Opposite Words
Learning opposite words is a fantastic way for students to increase their French vocabulary. This resource includes 135 words to learn. You'll get a downloadable list that you can distribute, and links to two study sets to help students practice and master all of these words. Have them start with the French - English set, then move on to the French - French set for a real challenge!
Students can have some fun while learning this huge list of really useful French words and their opposites as they work on 4 crossword puzzles. The puzzles give the English word and ask for the French equivalent. IMPORTANT: Only masculine forms of adjectives are used, and no accent marks are required. Answer keys are included.
Now for a real challenge that is a lot of fun with a partner or small group! Download your set of 135 practice strips, print, and hook together with a ring. You're going to really up their game with all of this new vocabulary! It's a nice break to move away from the screen sometimes. You'll be able to pull these out and have your students practice at any time.
Here's an example of what they say:
Si ce n'est pas beau, c'est quoi?
Answers are to be given in complete sentences. For example:
Si ce n'est pas beau, c'est moche!
You'll also get three sets of practice cards (64 cards each) which will allow students to see how these antonyms are used in context. One set is for reading aloud with or without a partner. The other sets require students to fill in the blanks with the missing opposite words.
SET 1: "Mon sac est trop lourd." "Enlève des livres et il sera plus léger."
SET 2: "Mon sac est trop lourd." "Enlève des livres et il sera plus _______."
SET 3: "Mon sac est trop _______." "Enlève des livres et il sera plus léger."
