This compressed file includes 3 resources:
1. A "discussion mat" of general phrases for lively debate including:
Tu es d’accord? = Do you agree?
Je suis d’accord = I agree
Je ne suis pas d’accord = I disagree
Attend! = Wait!
C’est ridicule! = That’s ridiculous!
Tu es fou/folle?! = Are you crazy?!
Ce n’est pas juste = It’s not fair!
Tu plaisantes? = You must be joking/ are you joking?
Check the pronunciation of these expression first.
2. A template to give opinions of clothes (colours included).
I ask the students to discuss the translation and pronunciation of these expressions. Extension: discuss and/or look up additional opinions.
3. A PowerPoint of various outfits.
Simply pair up/ group the students (I find similar abilities work best together for this activity) and give them 1 minute to debate the outfits. Encourage the stronger students to come up with spontaneous phrases and to ask you for additional vocabulary/ phrases as necessary.
It takes a little while to set this up thoroughly, but I loved watching the students expressing a range of opinions and really engaging with the material!
