Malden Manor - French - Progress Report

CLUB Malden Manor

Our aim is to ensure children understand and learn to love the culture of France and to gain good listening and speaking skills. We use lively role play, games, bingos, songs and activities to make French culture both enjoyable and memorable.

It is a pleasure to teach your children and I hope they enjoy as much as we do. If you have specific questions, please see me after the club or send an email to

For both groups we started every sessions with greeting each other an asking “comment ça va?”(how are you?)”ça va bien”(I am fine) “comme çi comme ça”(not to bad)”ça va mal”(I am bad) and we practiced basic polite words like s’il te plait (please), je voudrais(I would like), merci(thank you). . We played games like “bingo”, “Jacques a dit”(the French version of Simon says) so children learn vocabulary of actions through miming and “le mechant loup”(the big bad wolf) for learning the body part. We try to revise the vocabularies learned before as well as the colours and numbers at each session.
“les formes”(shapes): le cercle, le carré(square), le rectangle…”les fruits”: la fraise(strawberry), la pomme(apple), le raisin(grape)…”les legumes”(vegetables): la carotte,leschampignions(mushrooms), la pomme de terre(potato)…”les actions”: je pleure(I cry), je ris(I laugh), je dors(I sleep)…”faire les courses”(shopping).
