Creating a mystery scenario in an MFL lesson is a very effective and engaging metacognitive activity that is highly versatile and can be incorporated into any given topic.
Students work in groups and use problem-solving, analysis and decision-making techniques to investigate a mystery or to explore a particular question using information or ‘clues’ to help them do this. After reading all the evidence, their aim is to attempt to answer the chosen question in the target language, with a measured justification.
