This article is taken from the DIRECT MATIN website. I have reformatted and edited the information so that each of the candidates for the major political parties in France is pictured and described. There is a vocabulary box to help with comprehension. Students must first match each candidate with his/her party, then they must ID if each party is left or right (based on a graphic provided), and finally, students answer questions (in English) about the candidates.
This article goes great with a unit about FRENCH POLITICS or CURRENT EVENTS.
