Clicker MFL: French CD 2

As pupils become more confident in their language skills, French CD 2 offers a further range of activities that build on the vocabulary and structures of CD 1.

Clicker French CD 2 is divided into the following 10 units:


On y va (All Aboard)                    
L'Argent de Poche (Pocket Money)
Le Sport (Sport)
La Nourriture (Food)
Le Monde Animal (Animal World)
Quel Temps fait-il? (What's the Weather like?)
Les Vêtements (Clothes)
Quelle Heure est-il? (What's the Time?)
Les Nombres (Numbers)
Les Jours (The Days)

The activities in each unit are divided into the following categories for ease of use:

Red Activities

The Red Activities introduce core vocabulary for each topic.


Les mots



Trouve l'image

(Find the picture)


Qu'est-ce que c'est?*

(What is it?)

This activity introduces children to the new vocabulary of the topic. Explore the pictures and click on the hotspots. When a hotspot is clicked, the name of the object is spoken and a close up of the object and its name is shown.


Children listen to each of the core words in turn and then identify them by matching pictures and sounds. This enhances their understanding of the links between objects and the French language.


In this listening and speaking activity, children identify each hidden picture and then record their answer to the question asked. Children record as often as they like until satisfied.

*The title changes depending on the activity topic.


Lis les mots

(Read the words)


Ecris les mots

(Write the words)


Les cartes


In this activity children demonstrate their word recognition skills and record themselves reading each of the core words.


This activity is a labelling activity in which children use the pop-up grids to label the objects in the picture with the correct core word.


This activity uses on-screen flash cards to enable children to practise their word recognition of the core vocabulary.

Yellow Activities

The Yellow Activities introduce simple sentence structures.


Lis les phrases

(Read the sentences)


Ecris les phrases

(Write the sentences)


Dis les phrases

(Say the sentences)

This listening and reading activity introduces sentences related to the topic. It is designed so that new structures are introduced in small steps to ensure that learning can take place at an appropriate pace.


In this activity children use Clicker Grids to reproduce the sentences they are introduced to in the reading activity. The sentences they create will be read out to them, giving them an opportunity to assess their own performance.


Children record themselves answering questions or making statements in French using the new sentence structures introduced in the reading activity.

Green Activities

The Green Activities focus on reading short simple texts, and on comprehension.


Lis l'histoire

(Read the story)


Ecoute et répond

(Listen and reply)


Tu comprends?

(Do you understand?)

Children are presented with a relevant short story of information text to read and listen to, which enables them to develop their knowledge of the topic.


In this activity children demonstrate their comprehension by responding to the information they were introduced to in the reading activity. Typically they respond to questions or instructions, recording their answers in French.


This activity enables children to further demonstrate their understanding of French in a variety of ways, such as by answering questions, writing a report or selecting statements or pictures in response to a prompt.

Final Activity

The final activity offers children the opportunity to apply everything that they have learnt about a topic in a creative way, such as by producing their own book, writing a postcard or creating a chart.

On y va / Une carte postale

(All aboard / A postcard)

This activity enables children to write a holiday postcard in French.

Summary Activities

The summary activities offer children opportunities to speak about
themselves using the language learnt through the activities.


Parle 1

(Speak 1)


Parle 2

(Speak 2)


In this activity, children answer questions based on the topics covered on the CD. They are able to play and re-record their answers as many times as they like.


This open-ended activity involves recording questions and answers in French, and can be used as appropriate to the competence and learning needs of the children. It is done in pairs amongst classmates or as a teacher-pupil activity.
