Students love texting and use texting language all the time on their phones and on Twitter LOL :) Give them a cultural comparison activity that will pique their interests.
Incorporate the Community Standard in your French classroom or after school French Club with this 50 minute lesson and included activities: Discussion topic, Warm-Up, Assessment, Notes, Real-World Based Extension.
This lesson includes a list of various text expressions that French use in their daily electronic conversation (stp, dm1, keske c?...) that will be easily understood by all levels of French language learners. This activity is part cultural exploration, part puzzle, and part performance based task. This lesson helps language learners see a second language as a cultural expression of a real population in their daily lives.
This activity is BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) for students, and can also be completed without a cell phone by having students write their answers on the handout.
