The Cannes Festival

The Cannes Festival will take place 16-27 May and it is an opportunity to discuss Cannes, the French Riviera, the cinema industry and much more…

Recommended by Helen Myers on the mflresource forum, this site lends itself to a few activities about “Le festival de Cannes”

These are just a few ideas …

Personal information : “Quand les stars montent sur les marches”: personal description (e.g. Chloe Sevigny est blonde avec les yeux bleus), surveys including opinions and reasons (e.g. Je préfère Sophie Marceau parce que c’est une très bonne actrice) , superlative (eg. c’est le plus beau, le meilleur acteur …)

Film selection : What are these films about? (may need screening and doing off-line)
Could be used as a way to revise types of films?

Le look Festival de Canne: describe and give your opinion, best looks and fashion faux-pas.
Use as an example

You might even be able to include a reading comprehensive on luxury hotels on La Croisette making all the typical GCSE-type revision tasks about hotels that little bit more different for Y11 who have already seen it all at that time of the year, but who still need to revise hotel vocab, how to make a booking by telephone, reservation email etc…
