The animal condition in the French language classroom


This French language seminar on the animal condition is designed for learners at B2 level. It consists of a translation exercise, general discussion on the topic, and group work. It is designed to develop students’ written and spoken language skills in conjunction with their awareness and understanding of animal rights issues, in fostering their communication, research and critical thinking skills. This resource includes the seminar worksheet (students can be asked to prepare the translation in advance, or this can be done in class in groups) and a PowerPoint with translation options (including grammar and vocabulary explanations where relevant) and activities for developing students’ expression in relation to the topic of animal rights and welfare.
