Photo de Classe

An interesting project has been started at the website Photo de Classe. It’s a project that has been written both for native French speakers as well as French language learners. There are several modules to it, including geography, language, self-portraits and parent interviews. TV5 is involved and there are videos and written sections. It looks like a fun project to do with your classes, or just have students watch the videos.

Doesn’t that sound delicious? Take a trip over to their site and see what they have to offer.
