French Language Teaching with Scripts

Creating appropriate French language teaching materials is time consuming, so a little help is always welcome.

Play scripts offered on this page have been written specifically for use with students who are in the beginning levels of a French as a Second Language program.Using familiar stories and characters is a great way to introduce new French vocabulary and phrases. Combine this with an element of play and humour and you can grab the interest and enthusiasm of all of the students.

Getting students to participate orally can be a challenge, but give them a role in a humorous skit and fears of speaking French can melt away. Acting in short French plays gives students the opportunity to rehearse and perfect snippets of the French language, use actions, body language and props to make themselves understood - all necessary skills in learning to communicate.

Patricia Cash, an experienced teacher of French as a second language wrote the play scripts below to encourage the oral participation of her students. These short play scripts provided an enjoyable reading and performing experience for her students. Parents also looked forward each year to the humorous stage presentations highlighting their children’s progress in speaking French with a little drama!

You may make as many copies as you need for your class or French club and may perform the plays in class or on stage as long as you do not charge admission. For information about the material please contact the author.
