Product Description
In order for my students to really grasp when and how the subjunctive is used in French, they need to have a context that makes sense to them. In this activity, students will read an authentic "Courrier du Coeur," or "Dear Abby"-style letter written to Janette Bertrand, the French equivalent of "Abby" who wrote for Le Petit Journal in the 1950s-60s. The letter uses several examples of the subjunctive with impersonal expressions and with expressions of wish or desire.

Students will find examples of the subjunctive and then write a fill-in-the-blanks response, offering advice in the subjunctive to the writer. Students will then write their own letter to Janette using at least 5 sentences in the subjunctive. Finally, they will exchange papers with another student, read their letter and write a response as Janette using, again, 5 examples of the subjunctive.

This scaffolded activity allows students to see the subjunctive used in a fun context, use it themselves in a very accessible activity and then use it indepdently.

My students have a had a great time with this activity and I hope yours do too!
