French Dictation Exercise - Dictée - Pays, Langue, Nationalité
This is a beginner level dictée with the following theme: Pays, Langue, Nationalité
Ten sentences are included, and the grammar is very basic. The verbs être, aller, avoir, and faire are used in the present tense. Regular -ER verbs are also used in the present tense. There's also emphasis on nationality, where someone lives, her profession, the languages she speaks, and what she likes to do.
➯ Video presentation of the dictée. Watch me and listen as I read each sentence two times slowly enough to understand and write at the same time. Many non-natives find it makes the listening comprehension part of dictation exercises more manageable to see the speaker's mouth. Once I've finished reading the dictation, I will present each written sentence in French along with the English translation. Once we've gone through all of the sentences and students have checked their work, I will present the complete text in paragraph form on the screen. At that time, we can slowly read through the complete text together so they can see how the separate sentences actually form a short story.
➯ Audio presentation of the dictée.. Listen as I read each sentence two times slowly enough to understand and write at the same time. This version of the exercise will be more challenging as students will not see the speaker's mouth.
➯ PDF of the numbered sentences in the dictée and the English translation.
➯ Numbered student response sheet. This is located on page 2 of the PDF.

"Dictation is the transcription of spoken text: one person who is "dictating" speaks and another who is "taking dictation" writes down the words as they are spoken. Among speakers of several languages, dictation is used as a test of language skill, similar to spelling bees in the English-speaking world."
