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.
Having broadcast his new year message in the traditional way on TV, the French president Emmanuel Macron also posted a shorter version on Twitter and Facebook. This version is just over one minute long, with French subtitles making it more accessible for language learners, so why not use this clip at the start of the January term?
You could ask students to summarise his key messages, make a list of all the words they recognise or note some words that they would like to look up. What do they think of his approach? Would they like to see a similar broadcast from Theresa May?
