Use authentic language to help your beginning French students practice vouloir and some regular -er verbs in this interpretive listening activity.
For this activity, students will listen to "Je Veux" by Zaz, which can currently be found here: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xcn628 . Then they will hone their listening skills to find the missing words (conjugation of vouloir and a few regular -er verbs).
Next, students will use the authentic text to learn new vocabulary words that are found in the song, looking for cognates to enrich their vocabulary. Then they will use the words in context to help them discover the meaning of the song, Finally, they will answer some questions that build on their interpretation of the song and the meaning of the idiom "en vouloir de quelqu'un."
