Foreign language students will love this one. Visitors can choose from more than a dozen languages, scroll through the online library, then read and/or listen to the selection. A great way to build comprehension, vocabulary, and fluency. While you're visiting the site, check out some of the other links including the "universal conjugator" and the "children's dictionary." You'll want to have headphones handy for this one.

Originally designed to help students in Great Britain prepare for the GCSE (General Certificate of Secondary Education), this collection of activities based on real-life interactions is ideal for independent practice of listening, reading, speaking, and writing skills. With an emphasis on understanding and comprehension, the site offers "revision bites," which focus on key concepts, and "test bites" which allow students to test themselves on mastery of these concepts. Make this site available in your foreign language classroom or recommend as an "at home" resource. Headphones recommended.

tag(s): france (34), french (88)

In the Classroom

In a personal economy lesson, use this site to help students "plan a trip" to Paris. Assign students to cooperative learning groups, with each group receiving a hypothetical amount of money, and directions to find lodging, food, transportation while surveying the sites of Paris. This is a great way to teach students how to budget with real world prices and figures. For an emphasis on French history, require students to participate in certain tourist activities in their hypothetical situation - simultaneously creating challenges to their budgets. A great way to add some relevance to an economics lesson.
