Product Description
I use this French proverbs warmer at the beginning of and throughout the academic year.

Expressions:

All that glitters is not gold.
Tout ce qui brille n'est pas or.
Come what may.
Advienne que pourra.
Like father like son.
Tel père tel fils.
Never look a gift horse in the mouth.
A cheval donné, on ne regarde pas la bouche.
The end justifies the means.
La fin justifie les moyens.
There are plenty more fish in the sea.
Un de perdu, dix de retrouvé.
To err is human.
L'erreur est humain
When the cat's away the mice will play.
Quand le chat n'est pas là, les souris dansent.
You can't make an omelette without breaking eggs.
On ne fait pas d'omelette sans casser les œufs.
A rolling stone gathers no moss.
Pierre qui roule n'amasse pas mousse.
An eye for an eye (and a tooth for a tooth).
Oeil pour œil (dent pour dent).
Every penny counts.
Un sou est un sou.
Never put off to tomorrow what can be done today.
Il ne faut pas remettre au lendemain ce qu'on peut faire le jour même.
No news is good news.
Pas de nouvelles, bonnes nouvelles
Where there's a will there's a way.
Vouloir, c'est pouvoir.

You may choose to have different levels of challenge. For example,
Level 1 = match the cards and discuss the pronunciation.
Level 2 = match the cards , discuss the pronunciation and then have quick fire questions from French to English, whereby 1 student closes their eyes and their partner reads out the French cards which the student must translate into English from memory.
Level 3 = As Level 2 but the quick fire questions are from English to French.

Following checking there are 2 fun games to play, either pelmenism or a game I learnt in Japan called Karuta. In Karuta the students put the English language cards to one side and spread out the French cards in front of them. I then say the English and the students compete to touch the correct French card first. Whoever touches it first wins the card. The student with the most cards at the end of the game wins. The students love this game!
