Use French stories to teach vocubulary for leisure activities

In J’adore le football !, the thirteenth story in Learn French with Luc et Sophie, 2ème Partie, Luc and Sophie are watching a quiz show on TV. When Luc shouts out the correct answer, Sophie congratulates him. Then Sophie gets a question right. Maman comes in and asks if they are feeling OK.

The story is told via speech bubbles and simple text and is a fabulous way of introducing vocabulary for sports and other leisure activities.


As with all Luc et Sophie stories, there’s a twist at the end. Barbara Scanes, the author, says that she used her own children (who are now in their 20s!) as role models when thinking of what Luc et Sophie would do.

The book can be bought on it’s own, as part of the Year 5/6 Starter Pack or in a class set with all 14 storybooks for Years 5/6.
