Les réseaux sociaux – French Listening Lesson with Transcript

Les réseaux sociaux french listening lessonFrench Listening Lesson on Social Media and Social Networks

Social media and ‘les réseaux sociaux’ are a staple part of most young peoples’ lives in the 21st century. Therefore, I feel they are excellent themes to include in French GCSE exams.

However, as normal, I can’t find any great resources that don’t cost a bomb to help to practise listening skills on the topic. So, I decided to create this lesson on social media for GCSE French lessons. I believe it would work really well as an introduction into the social media topic in Year 10,  or used with year 11 as revision.

What is in the lesson on ‘les réseaux sociaux’?

The lesson is perfect for intermediate French students and includes a high quality MP3 audio file, a transcript, as well as six activities to exploit the audio. The activities include: comprehension questions, a speaking and writing activity, as well as specific questions which aim to focus the ear on the words that the students hear. All in all, to develop listening skills for French GCSE exams, but also to improve vocabulary, pronunciation and spontaneous writing skills.

The listening file includes the following details:

  • what social media is
  • how social networks have affected our lives
  • the positives and negatives of social media

The MP3 audio file is read by a native French speaker, at a medium speed and includes the basic elements to cover this modern theme, with an excellent range of higher level vocabulary, as well as key phrases, ideal for intermediate and upper-intermediate French learners, including students in Year 10 and Year 11 (KS4) .
