This article about appropriate school uniform appears in Le Monde and would make a good starting point for discussion with AS or A2 students. Plus, crispation is just such a great word!

Teaching ideas

  • Ask AS students to read the first paragraph only and A2 students to read the first two paragraphs of the article.
  • Students should note the key details and summarise the problem in French.
  • Challenge them to understand as much as they can without using a dictionary.
  • They could then discuss their own views of this news item.
