Below are free secondary French teaching resources for teachers in UK schools at KS3 and KS4 level to help you save time spent on lesson planning. Secondary school French teachers may find these websites useful for developing their own lesson plans or for signposting their pupils to innovative online content.
Key Stage 3
Oxfam have a Virtual Journey of France where you can take in the food, culture and 'mode de vie'. It is geared towards 11 and 12 year olds and offers a guide to the country's geography and history. There are interesting pieces of information and stats.
A great resource from the BBC is Talk French which is a video guide to learning the language from beginner through to intermediate level. It is suitable for KS3 upwards and includes vocabulary and grammar games.
An excellent revision tool is the French Crosswords site to help users improve and test their vocabulary. You can print out the crosswords, so that pupils can complete them offline.
Key Stage 4
The BBC GCSE Bitesize French site can help you to revise for your GCSE exams with revision and test exercises, as well as tips and advice for speaking, listening, reading and writing.
The Channel 4 French section is designed for 9 to 13 year olds and includes games based on key topics, such as family, food, colours, numbers, clothing and directions. It is mainly a collection of fun games and activities.
For intermediate users, Adodoc is a classroom or home study resource that can help pupils to practise their skills and learn about culture, as well as working on French language and comprehension exercises.
We hope you find these free teaching resources for French teachers very useful for Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 lesson planning.
