How to use this learning and assessment resource to improve practice

This animated video resource aims to support and stimulate young language learners by exemplifying pronunciation in French and allowing them to match the written and spoken word. They also aim to support practitioners by offering a platform that can lead to wider learning opportunities.

The topics are familiar and build on the kind of stories children might encounter when learning their mother tongue. The activities reinforce the key learning points from the video and the vocabulary lists allow practitioners to prepare any prior learning needed to assist understanding and enjoyment.

The teacher’s notes give a possible way of exploring the video resources, but practitioners are encouraged to find their own ways to use them.
