Practicing Spoken Skills in Year 4 French


One resourceful Year 4 student practices her French pronunciation.

A dedicated Year 4 student has been practicing her spoken skills in French during CSL. Asking questions and then answering them in this video, she challenged herself and showed her passion for the language. Being able to confidently express sentences shows that the student went through many steps to learn, from modelling to production. Students develop their oral skills by integrating the sentence patterns and playing with some variations of them. This Year 4 student gives herself opportunities to listen and spot tricky sounds and silent letters before being able to achieve an accurate pronunciation. During CSL, the children and the teacher stick to learning routines developed in class. Keeping those routines allow the students to get easily engaged, reflective about their learning as well as gaining independence as long-life learners.
