G5 French N2: Le francais c’est super facile!

Bonjour,

During our previous unit “Learning to learn” we went back on our  previous learning.

We have just started our Unit 1 about “What I can do” – Your child is going to learn to write about big numbers and building dialogues talking about his/her school subjects, responding to simple questions such as ” Qu’est ce que tu peux faire a l’ecole?”, “Quelle est ta matiere preferee?”, “What do you do in  … French class?…

Our routine is:

2 minutes of mindfulness:  > singing the song of the week > setting the date > looking at our daily language content and objectives > expressing our felling of the day “ca va super/ comme ci comme ca/ ca va mal” > activities (listening/ speaking and reading /writing…).

Don’t hesitate to ask them to share their learning… they already know so much!

Tiếng Việt vui.

Xin chào!

I’m Dung Tran and I’m very excited to have an opportunity to work with your child this academic year.

We have Vietnamese classes on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

And here are the units that we are going to explore throughout the year:

  • Chúng ta là ai – Who we are
  • Ngôi nhà của em – Home Sweet Home
  • Lễ hội – Celebrations
  • Đi du lịch – Travelling

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at tkdung@unishanoi.org

Who we are – Chúng ta là ai

“Who we are” is the first unit we are currently exploring in Vietnamese class. Students are inquiring into how communicating in another language help us to be connected with a wider community. Through different activities in the class, they have learned how to use and respond to greetings appropriately. The students can introduce and describe themselves and others using more descriptive words. They also start to pay attention to the tone marks in order to have better pronunciation. At the end of the unit, students will have a purposeful conversation with some of the Vietnamese native speakers.

Here are some links that you can use to practise Vietnamese with your child.

Unit 1 : My favorite animal

Bonjour la classe 5!

My name is Mr. Christophe and I will be teaching Grade 5, Novice 3.

I am teaching your child 3 periods of week of 40 minutes each time.

  • on Wednesdays
  • on Thursdays
  • on Fridays

Since the beginning of school year, we all have been focusing on classroom routines and getting to know each others in order for students and I to create a good classroom environnement and to build community so everybody is enjoying learning French all year long.

Recently, we have started a new unit and our central idea is Language with the use of description and questions can support our responsibility to be caring with animals.

Our learning intentions for the unit are :

  • Student will be able to name animals parts and use adjectives to describe them.
  • Students will be able to use the verb ”to be” and ”to have” in French.
  • Students will be able to present to the class orally and with a visual their favorite animal.
  • Students will be able to build a dialogue with their classmate after the presentation and ask questions.
  • Students will be able to answer questions from their classmate about their presentations.

This last couple of weeks, students have been learning and practicing the new vocabulary of the unit. They use Quizlet to get familiar with the spelling. They have also learn that the spelling adjectives can change with gender and numbers.

Students can practice at home the vocabulary if they wish with Quizlet. I have sent invitation to students to sign up so they can practice.

Below are some pictures when students looked at the classroom agreement and make connection with the IB learner profile in French.

Au revoir!
