Fun French Fairy Tale Plays - Learn Language Confidently Through Drama is a collection of 10 specially written French plays, which have been adapted from well-known stories. Each story is given a special twist to add extra humour;  Rapunzel lives at the top of the Eiffel Tower and Snow White loves to play sports!

The plays provide an ideal way of motivating children aged 7–13 to learn French. Pupils will enjoy the challenge of learning a French script and subsequently gain confidence through performing it to an audience of adults and/or fellow pupils.

The plays use simple repetitive language and are easily adaptable. Each play has a specific language focus, making it easy to link the plays to topics the pupils are studying.

The book contains reproducible scripts, English translations and suggestions for performing the plays. The CD-Rom included with the book contains audio files of native French speakers performing the plays as well as a PDF version of the book.
