Comprehensible Input is a great way to get students using French, but sometimes it's hard to come up with great starter ideas. This lesson will teach your students about the city of Paris, but also give them lots of CI!
The lesson focuses on these target words and phrases:
(ils/elles) habitent, il y a, beaucoup de, s'appelle
The language used is very basic with lots of cognates and limited vocabulary. Students could do this lesson as early as their first semester of French.
The lesson consists of:
a 21-page powerpoint with a simple reading about Paris
a paragraph version of the powerpoint text with simple comprehension questions
a short postcard reading activity based on the powerpoint
a short postcard writing activity
a grammar explanation of the ils/elles form of verbs
a guided oral retell with images
a guided written retell with images
additional video and website links
