This handout offers pre-listening and listening activities to go with the song J'AI CHAUD by FAUDEL. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ye7VQ5ml9TU
First students are given a weather map of France and another of North Africa and asked to ID the temperature in Celsius and convert it to Fahrenheit. The also have to say what the weather is like in Paris and in North Africa.
They are then given seven new vocabulary words from the song and asked to match them with their picture.
There are two during listening activities. First, they are given a list of familiar words and asked to highlight the words that they hear during the song. Second, there is a close listening activity with many of the same words removed from the song. Students have to listen carefully to fill in the missing words.
This song is PERFECT for novice learners who are studying weather. The words are easy to understand and the song is catchy. My students love to sing along and they can all still remember the refrain years after they hear it in class.
