Festival d’Avignon + Game Jeu de l’oie

How did you pick this theme or topic?

I wanted them to see what the festival was in my city, and to show different performances so they could learn some cultural things. I also wanted to keep playing the game we had started because it was a good way to make them speak and to know more about them.

How did you present the material? (Handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)

Youtube video
General discussion

How did students react?

They reacted well. They were interested in the videos and had quite a lot to say about their own experience in festivals/concerts. They liked playing the game too because the questions they had to answer were interesting.

Did they engage with each other and you?


What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
