French Songs for GCSE ClassromsMotivate French GCSE Students with French Songs In Your GCSE Classroom Today

Get some brilliant French songs and suggestions by topic below!

For me, music has always been an instrumental part of learning a language. As a student, I listened to French songs whilst studying, as well as in my free-time. This routine continued into my university days. Even today, ten years on, I still remember all the words to Je te promets by Zaho (2008) and Ça mousse by Superbus (2008)! I was able to improve my pronunciation, develop my vocabulary and learn about a range of singers and groups from different French speaking countries. All of this has helped to make me a better French speaker today. 

My love of foreign music has continued and I still keep up-to-date with new music from German, Spanish and French speaking countries. In addition, it’s something that I enjoy sharing with my GCSE French students. In the past, I have used French songs, such as Nino Ferrer – ‘Les cornichons’ to teach food and Stromae’s ‘Papaoutai‘, to begin a discussion into modern families in the classroom. I find that I am constantly looking for suitable songs to use in my French GCSE lessons, whether to use as introductions to topics, as talking points, or to illustrate differences between French and English culture. This can, clearly, be very time consuming. Therefore, I have compiled this three page list of fabulous contemporary and classic French songs for the AQA French GCSE classroom that you can > Download Resource Here . Please avoid using internet explorer to download the file, users have had issues on this web browser! The list of French songs contains 45 French songs, specifically for the French GCSE classroom. You will find the artist’s name, the song title, as well as a link to one of the best quality version’s of the video that I could find on YouTube.
