Next lesson, you're going to write and record your own descriptions of where you live.
So today, we're going back over everything we've done this term - and bringing it all together in one extended answer.
We will use a WRITING FRAME, and if you want to be more creative, you can start to substitute nouns and adjectives in it for new ones you've looked up.
TASK 1: REGARDEZ ET ÉCOUTEZ
Watch this slightly strange song, to revise how to talk about where you live.
TASK 2: REGARDEZ
This is a WRITING FRAME.
You can use it to write grammatically accurate sentences about where you live.
You can adapt it creatively by looking up different dwellings, rooms and adjectives.
Look at the writing frame for a few moments, and try to understand what it says.
TASK 3: ÉCOUTEZ et RÉPÉTEZ
Listen, look at the writing frame, and repeat when you hear the CLAP!
Here's the writing frame again to help with the next task:TASK 4: TRADUISEZ
Write letters a-j down the side of your page. Write these sentences in French, using the writing frame.
Use the blue and yellow sections of the writing frame to translate these sentences.
Watch out for mon and ma!
a) I live in a flat in town, in Paris, with my friend.
b) I live in a caravan, by the sea, in Burnham, with my dog.
c) I live in a castle in the countryside, in Wedmore, with my family.
Use the orange and yellow sections to translate these sentences.
Watch out for mon, ma, un and une! Remember where the adjectives go in French!
d) In my flat there is a medium-sized bathroom.
e) In my caravan, there is a small, modern kitchen.
f) In my castle, there are four big, comfortable bedrooms and three pretty, old-fashioned living rooms.
Use the pink, yellow and orange sections to translate these sentences:
g) I love my flat because it is comfortable.
h) I like my caravan because it is modern.
i) I hate my castle because it is horrible!
Use the whole writing frame to translate this:
j) I live in a house by the sea, in Blackpool. In my house, there is a big, modern kitchen, a small, comfortable living room, and a strange bathroom. I like my house because it is small but fantastic!
EXTENSION OPTION 1:
Write a paragraph using the writing frame, but look up new words on such as:
- a different dwelling
- different rooms
- different adjectives
EXTENSION OPTION 2:
Listen to the song in Task 1 again, and try to transcribe (write down) all the words. You could even write an English translation!
And you could learn to sing along! Here it is:
