This is a simple activity to get kids speaking! Students are given cards with an English sentence and the translation in French. They circulate around the room, giving various people the sentence in English, their partner says it in French, and then the student says whether they were right or wrong. They then switch cards and continue on to the next person.
A variation would be to do it with mini-white boards and make it into a writing activity.
This activity focuses on:
-the verb ALLER in the positive and negative
-going TO cities, masculine countries and feminine countries
I love it because:
-KIDS are the ones who check the speaking/grammar of other kids
-it gets kids speaking!
-it's a good "filler" activity, as it can range from just 1 minute to 5 or 10
