PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Expressions:

Le football est plus intéressant que le golf!
Le basket est plus passionant que le tennis!
David Beckham est plus célèbre que Thierry Henri!
Britney Spears est plus intéressante que Beyonce!
La pêche est moins passionante que le foot!
La nourriture italienne est moins épicée que la nourriture mexicaine!
La musique es aussi fatigante que le sport!
Le chocolat est meilleur/ pire que la natation!

The first slide encourages the students to actively engage with the new vocabulary: working in teams, using their prior knowledge, knowledge of other languages and using a process of elimination to figure out the meanings and rules. It is differentiated as follows:

All: translate the sentences below.
Most: What is the word in red? What should we check here?
Some: Come up with 5 comparative sentences.

The next slides have each phrase and a picture. Use this to elicit the pronunciation, the English, the rules and to drill.

Slide 11 can be printed off and stuck in the student's books. It summarises the information and sets a written task as follows:

Comparatives.In order to compare two things we use the following structures:
plus + adjective + que = more … than
moins + adjective + que = less … than
aussi + adjective + que = as … as

E.g. Le football est plus intéressant que le golf! =

Remember: to say that something is better than = meilleur que and to say that something is worse than = pire que.

E.g Le chocolat est meilleur que la natation =

Remember: the adjective must agree with the subject of the sentence.

E.g.
Le football est plus intéressant que le golf!
Britney Spears est plus intéressante que Beyonce!

1. Create 10 of your own comparatives using a variety of adjectives.* Try to use plurals e.g les films de science fiction sont plus intéressants que les films d’horreur. Also use different tenses: Les comédies étaient meilleures que les actualités
