I teach this after teaching the Future Tense.
Si j’étais riche j’achèterais une grande maison à la campagne.
Si j’étais riche je conduirais une ferrari!
Si j’étais riche je boirais du champagne tous les jours!
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. It is differentiated as follows:
All: translate the sentences below. What is the stem? What does this remind you of? What is the ending?
Most: Match the subject pronouns: je, tu, il/elle/on, nous, vous, ils/elles and the endings: aient, ais, ait, ions, ais, iez.
Some: Which tense has the same endings? QFQs!
* QFQs = Quick Fire Questions: here the students quiz each other.
The next slides have the phrase and a picture. Use this to elicit the pronunciation, the English, the rules and to drill.
Slides 6 and 7 consider the stem and endings.
