Voici une liste d'exercices sur Quia.com qui sont tout en français.
C'est à dire qu'il ne s'agit pas de traduire de l'anglais en français ou inversément p.ex.
Cela les rend plus facilement utilisables dans les classes de langues d'autres pays que les pays anglophones.
Si vous connaissez d'autres sites où il y a des exercices de ce genre, pourriez-vous me les communiquer pour que je fasse la même chose?
Ensuite je vais les ranger par sujes et par niveau.

Il y a des yeux dans le bouillon
when you make pot-au-feu and you use the required bone with marrow in it, you
have a fairly fatty broth (le bouillon). The fat floats on top of the broth
and forms circles: les yeux. Il y a des yeux dans le bouillon means that
there is fat floating on top.

For teachers of ESL, I have a web-based activity on body parts and
My students love to draw & label outlines of each other. After
a day or two
For body parts we play 2 games that my Spanish students love!
SLAP-SLAP CLAP-CLAP SNAP-SNAP
It is played kind of like CATAGORIES: We sit in circle on
Variation: stick the post it notes on the desks and when someone
HUMAN CHAIN: Each student is given a paper or sticky with a
I hope that this was a clear explanation. If anyone needs
Once the students are farily familiar with the vocabulary for body parts, I
do the following games:
*Twister -- I have accumulated several Twister mats and divide the students
*Body part mix-up -- Usually on the 2nd day of learning the parts of
*Concentric circles body parts -- This activity is only for a class
*Butcher paper -- I've also had students draw the outline of a person
Hope this helps.
I do most of the activities that have already been mentioned, with a few more. I do "Head Shoulders Knees and toes"which I'm sure that most teachers to. But, to add a fun twist on it, if you have a class that get along REALLY REALLY WELL...I have them get with a partner and face their partner. Then, when we sing the song, they have to touch that part on their partner. It's funny, because I'll have partner A do it first, then partner B do it, and then both at the same time!
Another thing I do is the hokay pokey, which they love.
I also dictate a "Personne Bizarre" to them...someone with four heads, three legs, a mouth on their stomach, etc. Then we look at the pictures and see who had all the components. Then, I have them write a description and pass it to another student, who then has to draw a picture based on the description.
If you can't find them using this site, mayde they are NOT French
abbrevions. Twice as many ACTIVE links as before:
Sigles, Acronymes, Abreviations, etc.

A fun new site now teaches languages on-line: French, Spanish, and ESL.

It's free and fun, and can be of great use in the classroom.

Not sure you will really find a college equivallent to an AP course,
though any college language department with a collective IQ higher than
their individual shoe sizes looks at AP test scores when considering
