LES SPORTS: 22-26 February

L'OBJECITIF: To learn the names of 14 sports in French

   ...don't worry, a lot of them are VERY similar to English!

Task 1: REGARDEZ 

Watch the video to see which sports we are learning this term.

14 sports en 2 minutes!

Task 2: À TOI! (Your turn!)

Watch it again, STAND UP, and this time repeat the words and copy the actions!

You will need to stand up with plenty of space!

 

Doing an action while saying a new word will help your brain to recall it in future.

Task 3: ÉCRIVEZ 

Watch the video one more time, and pause it as you go along, to write 2 lists of the sports:

 

MASCULINE FEMININE

le tennis

 

 

 

la danse

 

 

 

 

 

The blue words are masculine, and use LE.

The red words are feminine, and use LA.

 

LE and LA change to L' before a vowel or an H, to make them easier to say. There are 2 examples in the video!

 

What are the vowels? __ __ __ __ __

 

TASK 4: QUELLE EST TON SPORT PRÉFÉRÉ?

 

Mon sport préféré, c'est... = My favourite sport is...

 

  • Quel est ton sport préféré?
  • Mon sport préféré, c'est le vélo! 

                 

 

Copy the question, then finish the sentence with your own favourite sport.

 

You can look up other sports on this online dictionary:

      https://www.wordreference.com/ 

 

 

Here's one we've looked up - archery - it is tir à l'arc - and you can see it is masculine because it says nm (masculine noun)

...so it is le tir à l'arc.

TASK 5: REGARDEZ 

Watch this video, where people are interviewed about their favourite sports

See how many sports you understand... you might recognise some other words too!

You could write down the names of any sports you hear.

Quel est ton sport préféré ? / Quel est votre sport préféré ?

To ask "what is your favourite sport?" in French you can say "quel est ton sport préféré ?", or in a more formal situation, "quel est votre sport préféré ?" ...
