 What worked well in this class? What did not work?

-The students were passionate about sports and glad to talk about it. But some of them already knew the rules, and some of them didn’t. It was frustrating at the beginning but they actually asked questions in French, which generated a lot of talk.

 How could this class be improved/ modified?

-A video of a game could have been useful
