Yr7 and Yr8: Your challenge is to create your own mini-booklet about a Francophone country (a country where French is spoken as an official language). It can be hand-written or done on a word document or PowerPoint. It can be A4 or A5. It can be in English, or in English and French- you decide!
Elements that you could include:
- details of the foods and drinks of the country
- details of traditions/festivals in the country
- details of the country’s Geography (eg. names of rivers, population size)
- a creative page (eg. a mood board with pictures and colours/ symbols from the country that you like!)
- Something extra – you own idea (eg. sport played in the country)
Yr9: You are at a time when you need to start thinking ahead to your future, and which jobs you like the sound of doing. Your challenge is to research a career that uses languages (eg. teacher, pilot, advertising rep, and many more!), and create a PowerPoint to explain the career.
You could include:
- How much people earn in the career you chose to research
- A daily diary- what do they do each day and at what times?
- An interview with someone who does that job right now!
- A slide on the advantages and disadvantages of the job
- If you would like to do that job in the future
Yr10 and Yr11: You are at a time when you are thinking about your future, and what experiences you may have after college. Have you ever thought about what you already know about the world and cultural differences between countries? Your challenge is to create a PowerPoint illustrating and exploring cultural differences between the U.K. and another country, (eg. You could compare the U.K. and France, and think about school life, family life, foods eaten, politics, etc).
You could include:
- Contrasts in diet: food and drink, specialities.
- Contrasts in the education system: do they start and finish school at the same time? The same age? What are the exams like?
- Contrasts in sports: who has the most successful football teams, Olympic athletes, tennis players? Why do you think this is?
- Contrasts on views on marriage, religion, and human rights.
- Contrasts in the political stances of the 2 countries.
- Contrasts in the industries and businesses in the 2 countries.
- Your own ideas about how the 2 countries are culturally similar and different!
