The diversity of the French speaking world is a revelation to most students!
Teachers often look for materials that will speak to specific students. Two of the units deal with Africa: the first is about music, the second about languages.
Unit 1. Un voyage en Martinique. A young tourist packs her bags for a holiday in Martinique. Review clothing to help her select the right items to pack. Once in Martinique, she writes her friend a postcard, a cloze exercise. Upon her return, she goes back to school where her teacher explains French DOM and TOM.
Unit 2. Youssou N'Dour. Teach musical instruments with Youssou N'Dour's band; have your students think how the languages now spoken in North and South America have displaced the original languages.
Unit 3. Le français en Afrique. Focus your attention on Africa and see where French is spoken. This information is an excellent way of practicing quel / quels and quelle / quelles.
