Saveurs sans frontières: Learn French through Gastronomy
In this Just in Time Teaching activity, students will watch a video outside class on the marketing and culinary arts in a Francophone country. From the TV5 Monde video, shot in Papeete Tahiti, students will learn about local market customs, typical ingredients in the Tahitian diet and method of preparation of typical Tahitian dishes. They will review vocabulary for common foods and learn about more exotic ones. The students will complete exercises on the TV5 Monde website and ultimately discuss the video in class at the next meeting.Activity authored by Laura Franklin, Professor of French at Northern Virginia Community College, to be used in conjunction with the original website Apprendre.TV from TV5monde.
