Teachers Talking

Jenny Carpenter and David Buckland


Teachers Talking French is an easy to use language booster course for primary practitioners whose French is limited or rusty. Its purpose is to enable classroom teachers or teaching assistants working in Key Stage 2 to deliver confidently all or part of their French lessons in French.

The course consists of a set of 6 audio CDs that portray two primary teachers, Andrew and Sophie, working with a pair of expert tutors. The tutors help Andrew and Sophie to develop their vocabulary, grammatical understanding, pronunciation, fluency and confidence.

Teachers Talking French follows a carefully planned linguistic progression. Previously taught language is constantly revisited and re-combined with new material, all in familiar primary classroom contexts.

The recordings are structured and presented in a way that makes it easy for the listener to join in and take an active part in the learning. In addition to the audio lessons, listeners are also able to hear all items of language expertly pronounced by a native speaker.

What makes Teachers Talking French special

Teachers Talking French is a simple and straightforward audio-only course. There are no books and no written tasks.
All the language featured in the recordings is directly linked to the context of the primary classroom, for example:

  • names of classroom objects provide the context for work on gender;
  • classroom instructions provide the context for work on the imperative form of verbs;
  • looking ahead at the coming lesson provides the context for work on the future tense and for expressions of sequencing (d'abord, ensuite, après etc.);
  • teacher modelling provides the context for work on the first person singular of the present tense;
  • looking back over the lesson provides the context for work on the past tense.
Teachers Talking French is much, much more than a classroom phrasebook!

The recordings are designed to help teachers:

  • work things out;
  • improve their pronunciation;
  • build their own sentences;
  • compare the grammar and structure of French and English;
  • develop strategies for communicating clearly and effectively - often with just a little language;
  • practise and then use what has been taught;
  • recycle their learning in new contexts.
In addition to the audio lessons, listeners are also able to hear all items of language expertly pronounced.

Guidance for Use

Teachers Talking French is suitable for:

  • teachers and teaching assistants
  • primary head teachers and language co-ordinators
  • languages inspectors advisers and trainers
  • local authority strategy manager.

Teachers Talking French will give you the language you will need to work confidently with children, whilst at the same time building your fluency, your accuracy and your understanding of how French works.

It is an ideal resource for busy teachers whose time is precious, who like to work at their own pace and who want to manage their professional development with materials which are flexible, expertly produced and targeted directly at their needs.
