If you want authentic materials for your lesson but don’t have time to search the net, here’s something for you. Topical, engaging news articles and video clips with suggested teaching ideas.
The first minute of this survey video on YouTube (from www.generation-what.francetv.fr) could be a nice starting point for getting AS-level French students to discuss family relationships. First, ask your class to answer the survey question for themselves:
Tes relations avec tes parents sont plutôt:
Next, you could ask them to watch the clip and make a tally of how many of the young people interviewed pick each option (note that one person picks 'tout à la fois'! They could also make a note of the percentages given around the 50 second mark of the clip, suggesting that 80% of 18-34 years olds have a relationship with their parents that is 'cool/idéal'. The rest of the clip goes on to look at trends in the rest of Europe, so is less relevant from a language point of view. The first minute of the clip is sufficient as a lesson starter.
