French lessons -we’ve all been there. Some of you younger kids are in the midst of this hell right now! I am still taking French and I am going to highlight some things that need be changed ASAP.
Firstly, when are we going to have to talk about our town when in France? Schools need to review what vocab they are teaching in French. When a potential French friend asks us: ” How are you? Can I have your phone number?” how in the world are you going to know what to say? You could say: “I’m sorry, I have no idea what you are saying, but I can tell you about my town if you’d like?” Yeah, right. So I get you want kids to pass their French A levels, but could you not incorporate a small amount of language the kids will actually use, should they go to France? I honestly don’t get it.
Also, you can’t refuse to teach students useful language and then rapidly converse with the kids in French and expect them to understand. If your students are slowly learning how to say “Bonjour” then you can’t rapidly say “Je m’applle Madame Croissant, comment tu t’appelles?”. That’s not alright.
Sorry for such a short post, DQs. I hope I brightened your day with this small exerpt from my mind. I hope it also made you laugh, because that was the point of this post.
