National 4 and 5 listening practice
Education Scotland has published this resource which includes 10 recordings of French teenagers describing events in their everyday lives. Topics covered are typical of those in the N4/N5 syllabus.
The Professional Development Officers at SCILT recommend the following French reading materials for use with the new Higher. The French resources tie in with the context of Society: Family and friends - gang culture.
SCILT's Professional Development Officers have developed a pack of resources on Silence de la Mer which are suitable for Advanced Higher French pupils who have limited teaching input.
The pack includes information on the Specialist Study Unit; suggested timescales; character analysis; themes; suggested portfolio titles and a glossary of vocabulary.
French films for schools
Every year, in October and November, the latest French films are shown at film festivals across Scotland, and teachers are invited to bring their pupils to these showings. The films are shown at the Discovery Film Festival in Dundee, during the National Schools Film Week, and at the French Film Festival in Scotland.
Teachers can also borrow DVDs from the library of the Institut Français in Edinburgh or from the Alliance Française in Glasgow.
