Use authentic language to help your beginning French students practice their activities and dates vocabulary in this interpretive listening activity.
For this activity, students will listen to "En été" from La Reine des Neiges, which can currently be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xBPay2i_emc . Then they will hone their listening skills to find the missing words that relate to their seasons and weather vocabulary.
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 weather/ season/ and preferences vocabulary to further develop their language skills.
My 7th and 8th grade students loved hearing a song they were familiar with sung in another language! Hopefully, yours will love it, too!
