Today as I was scroling through Twitter, I came across the following Tweet from @MrFrancisMFL via #mfltwitterati chat.
I asked if it was ok to share his work so that I could create my own version in French.
You can download the original Spanish version as a PDF here: Monopoly
or download from TES here:
My adapted French version can be downloaded as a PDF here:
French Cultural Monopoly
Thanks also to Ms Dickinson over on Facebook who has just sent me the German version: Monopoly_Deutsch
Thank you to Mr Francis for sharing his excellent work – it is at times like this that it is even more important to share our work and creative ideas for the benefit of our students.
Sending love to you all,

3 to choose from – let’s have a listen now!
*Final steps for today
Can we come up with a catchy chorus and / or verse?
Bien manger, je suis en forme
Danser, bouger, c’est la norme
Beaucoup de légumes et de fruits, il faut bien dormir la nuit
Si tu fais beaucoup de sport, tu seras très fort!
Les légumes à volanté, c’est très bonne pour la santé
Tu n’aimes pas les fruits? C’est pas vrai! Bof! Tant pis!
**Bonne continuation et bon courage!**
I am very excited to be presenting at this year’s Language World conference in Manchester speaking about the exciting and ever important 17 SDGs and how we can easily incorporate these life changing themes into our language lessons.
Find below a link to my presentation which includes the contact details you will need to gain free access to the 20 free French lessons I have written in collaboration with the wonderful folk at Leeds DEC.

Here is a 2 part lesson I have created as part of the Leeds DEC work I have been doing on the 17 SDGs,
Water and clean sanitation are one of the 17 all important goals and as today is WORLD TOILET DAY, I thought it appropriate to share what I have done for use in your lessons. Aimed at KS4/5 the lesson is clearly laid out and can be used as a stand alone lesson or you can dip in and out and just use individual parts of the lesson as you see fit.
As always feedback is welcomed!
