Winner! CILT European Award for Languages 2003
By putting everyday language into music, "The Language Factory" resources are simple and fun to use. Children pick up rhythm, rap & rhyme very easily and so the repetitive nature of the songs and raps help children learn the correct pronunciation and intonation for that language.
Being exceptionally teacher friendly, The Language Factory materials are perfect for use by non-specialist teachers (and parents too!).
This pack incorporates the original key elements of the Français! Français! resource pack and contains:

Français! Français! Book
Developed to accompany all three Français! Français! audio CDs, the Français! Français! book comes in full colour and features vocabulary pages, where each vocabulary item has a picture. Each picture has the French word in blue (masculine) or red (feminine) and in English.
Opposite the vocabulary lists are pages where that vocabulary is used in short simple conversations, poems, songs, raps and jokes. There is a CD reference for each song, rap, poem or conversation so that the tracks can be easily located.
It could not be more user friendly! Perfect for the pupil, teacher and the primary or non specialist teacher, or teacher of special needs.
Words in English to all the songs and conversations can be found in the back of the book.
Français! Français! Resources CD-Rom
The Français! Français! resources CD-ROM has been specifically designed by an ICT Specialist to enable teachers to gain the maximum from the book and audio CD collections.
A fully comprehensive 'READ ME' folder is available on the CD-ROM full of ideas for photocopiable games and worksheets. The CD-ROM is also suitable for use with classroom projectors.
With over 30 topics to choose from, the teacher simply prints out the resources when required.
Resource items include:
- Flash Cards -
Available in full colour A5 size, flash cards can be prepared so that the picture
is on one side and the picture and the word on the other.
Wording on flash cards is also available in outline only so that colour printers
need not be used and pupils can colour in the word in the appropriate "gender" colour.
- Display Songs / Raps -
Songs and raps can be printed so that they can become posters. These can be
permanently displayed or brought out when a topic requires revisiting.
Singing a song or rapping a rap is a perfect form of revision!
