Teachers of French looking for conversation stimulus questions for Stage 3 courses will thank their generous colleagues for this gift.
Peta Fitzgerald, Elisabeth Gerber and Gigi Thiele explain:
We hope that you find these revised Stage 3 questions helpful. We have aimed to provide fairly open-ended questions which will allow students to express their ideas in broad general terms.
Hopefully, this will help to minimize the rote learning which has become more prevalent in recent times.
The most obvious changes will be in the topics of TV, Cinema and music. These are now slanted more with respect to the French-speaking communities and therefore involve some cultural issues which may or may not be familiar to some teachers. Please note: students should not feel compelled to give in-depth, complicated answers to these. Rather, students should be able to demonstrate a basic knowledge of these aspects of French life, and to express it simply and clearly in every day French.
Bon courage et bon travail,
Peta Fitzgerald, Elisabeth Gerber and Gigi Thiele
