We've just published a special resource to go with this short animation on the topic of the environment, so if you're looking to make authentic listening more accessible … job done!

Students can get bored with predictable textbook listening tasks and often perceive listening practice as a test. However, we think this fun animation should help liven up listening, motivate your students and give them a boost – they'll have understood some real French! Also, I can pretty much guarantee they'll pick up the word 'prout' in the process.

Our worksheet has been designed to accompany the '12 solutions des enfants pour le climat' clip which is part of the '1 jour, 1 question' series of videos on YouTube. It includes a pre-listening starter activity and a listening for gist task to help your class get the most out of the native-speaker speed animation.

This is followed by a listening for detail task, which is differentiated into bronze, silver and gold. Translation sentences based on the clip are also included, along with answers and teaching notes.

Basically, it's an instant lesson! The PDF is free! What more could you possibly want?
