With the Eurovision Song Contest coming up in May, why not play your class the French entry by Amir? You can find the official video here - it's pretty catchy but will it win your students' vote?

Teaching ideas

Copy and paste the lyrics from here into a Word document.

You could cut up the lines or verses for students to reorder, create a gapped listening task (perhaps taking out all the past participles) or ask them to translate a verse from French to English or vice versa (there are some lyrics in English.)

You can find a version of the video with the lyrics shown here, for students to check their answers.
