Ready-to-use research tasks, worksheets, background information and practice exam questions ensure a full understanding of this popular film. Students will know the film inside out and be well prepared for the speaking and writing exams.

Logical structure offers the perfect balance between guided class work and independent research:

  • Before: introductory tasks prepare students – initial vocabulary activities and research tasks on the context, real-life characters and Louis Malle
  • During: worksheets, research tasks and detailed analysis of key scenes support students’ interpretation of the film
  • After: exam-style oral and essay questions for students to apply what they have learnt. A model plan and essay prompt discussion of successful answers
Guides students in close viewing of the film, offering specific vocabulary and exercises or questions to guide comprehension and discussion. Encourages students to view the film several times, honing their analytical approach as they do so. N Backus, French Teacher & Independent Reviewer
