Because we were reviewing for the exam and we had guests, we skipped our normal bell work. (The guests only came by during 2nd block.)
2. Word list
I highlighted a number of vocabulary words and phrases that are particularly important for succeeding on the listening section for tomorrow's test. See the document below.
We had 6 French students who are here for the week visit our class for most of the block. They started by introducing themselves. Then we formed small groups of 4. Each French student joined a group and we asked them questions in French to learn more about them.
4. Listening Practice
While the 6 visitors went outside to prepare something to share with you, we did a practice listening test for our French exam tomorrow.
5. French Slang, etc.
The 6 visitors taught us 6 slang words that are good to know when talking with French young people:
une caisse – car (voiture)
aller en boîte – go to a nightclub
un bahut – a school
un fute – un pantalon
des pompes – shoes
un pieux – a bed
Then we just continued our discussion about various interests, cultural differences, concerns, etc.
