Fête de la Musique

This annual French celebration of music is coming up on 21 June. Why not set a homework task to research this event, whose popularity continues to grow worldwide?

You could direct students to the event website, where they could translate the list of '10 bonnes raisons de ne pas manquer la fête de la musique'.

A-Level resources

Can you help us develop our MFL resource bank for key stage 5? If you have created resources for your AS or A-Level classes this year, now's a great time to share them with other teachers!

We'd love to see resources created for the new exam specifications, especially speaking, translation and grammar.

Unfortunately we can't publish resources containing copyright material (song lyrics, internet articles etc.) but we can source any photos or images you need.
