Language and Level (intermediate or advanced class): Advanced

Class theme/topics discussed: Proverbs

Goal of the class: Make the students learn some French proverbs that can be really useful in everyday French speaking.

How did you structure the class? The first part of the class ~40 min consisted in the students trying to reconnect beginnings and ends of 30 proverbs that I had selected for them, cut in two and mixed. The second part consisted in explanations and playing little scenes to make the other students guess a proverb.

What technology, media or props did you use? (internet resources, playmobiles, handouts, etc.)

I used 30 proverbs cut in two.

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

It was a lot of fun. I think the students really loved it. Proverbs are an important and very interesting part of a language. They asked that I sent them the list. Also the skits were really fun

How could this class be improved/ modified?

I had no problem whatsoever with all the bits of paper and in the end I think everyone had fun.

If you have a more detailed lesson plan, please attach it below (OK to use target language for that). Please attach any handouts as well.
