Written by Suzi Bewell, well known and highly respected languages teacher and trainer. Suzi has an indefatigable passion for the French language and has always been more than a tad disappointed not to see more real French culture in text books and learner resources. Having bemoaned this situation for many years, she has decided to shut up and take action!
These are the first 2 books from the series of 12 featuring Polly Glot's adventures in the francophone world. This book sees Polly the curious multilingual parrot travel to France and Belgium and discover more about the people and culture. Polly visits the Paris, Nice, and many theme parks and also the Carnaval in Binche, she sees all the sights of Brissels including the BD musuem and the famous Mannekin Pis and all his many costumes! Polly also gets carried away eating lots of chocolate in Bruges!
The book is aimed at upper KS2 pupils but would also be suitable for older learners as an aide-mémoire or simply for independent reading for pleasure.
The books include many hyperlinks to songs and additional cultural information which can be expoloited in class via the IWB or at home should you wish to share the book with your learners. The book can also be printed out and is attractively presented in full colour with QR codes which allow both the teacher and the learner to access French native speaker sound files.
Whatsmore, there are 2 quizzes via Quizlet and Kahoot which allow the teacher to review the learning in a fun and interactive light touch way. There is also a final page of useful links where you can find more information about France / Belgium and the French / franco-belge culture.
We hope you and your learners enjoy these books! More books coming soon featuring Switzerland and the wider French speaking world including Canada, Guyane, Martinique, Réuinion and more.
