Share this poem by Victor Hugo with your students this fall. Challenge them to translate it and then identify nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs. Finally, have them memorize the last two lines so they have a ready response for those that ask them to "Say something in French."

L’aube est moins claire,
L’air moins chaud,
Le ciel moins pur,
Les longs jours sont passés. . . + 3 more lines.
