Foreign Language Speaking and Writing Activity Using Powerpoint

Foreign (World) Language Speaking and Writing Powerpoint Activity (French, Spanish) wlteacher.wordpress.com

This is a great activity to get students saying (or writing) complete sentences in the target language that  demonstrate the meaning of the verb.  Powerpoint animation can be a very effective tool for these writing and speaking activities.

Here are two possibilities:

  • Students write sentences based on the subject and infinitive on each slide when a infinitive and a subject pronoun are revealed. Students also see 4 possible verb forms. An additional click can reveal the correct form for students to verify their answer and present a question word so that students can complete the sentence with an answer to the question word.
  • Another option is for two students to go to the board (where powerpoint is projected) and each one has a fly swatter. The activity begins just as the first activity, but in this version the first student to slap the correct verb form says a complete sentence with the correct verb form once the form is revealed and the question word appears.Foreign (World) Language Speaking and Writing Powerpoint Activity (French, Spanish) wlteacher.wordpress.com

These are fairly straight-forward uses of powerpoint animation.  You can also download complete version with 50+ slides here:
