Cover the near future tense and new vocabulary with Dr Amanda Barton’s new year resolutions lesson.
This lesson starts with a quick look at French culture through an important new year tradition and goes on to introduce the children to the near future tense – je vais (I’m going to) – by thinking about new year resolutions.
You might have already covered some of the vocabulary under food and drink, or sport, so it’s a good way of consolidating this, before adding the new language for household chores. The examples in the lesson plan are given in French but the activities can be used with any language.
