  37. 37. Bringing Conjugation Back and Cry Me a Verb – fantastic resource for Spanish verbs French orals – Ade Edmundson and Graham Norton (and others) – give pupils speaking criteria and get them to grade the performances,get them to give them 2 stars and a wish, what can they learn from these performances? Search for specific grammar points in the appropriate language ie Prepositions Introduce classes to the classics ie Edith Piaf in French Or look for something more modern ie Girls Aloud Je ne parle pas français in French or look for songs relevant to particular topics ie Diam’s Ma France à moi or Marly Gaumont by Kamini both good for talking about where you live, classes could then do Mon Ecosse à moi How about the more unusual ? Schlag mich Baby noch einmal by the Wise Guys or Stefan Remmler’s Alles hat ein Ende nur die Wurst hat zwei In French sing along to Dansez avec Igor , les cornichons and Jean Petit qui danse Look out for star turns – try looking for interviews with Mika in French Other useful things – the Torres Nike ad , “ Ken Lee ” – surely a skills lesson in there somewhere!
