What do teachers have to say about this resource? (6931)
'I thought the resource was engaging and would definitely appeal to my more able year 8 and 9 students. I particularly liked the sheer variety of different activities. You could use a different celebrity card each term without the students becoming bored, as the activities are varied on each card. Students love all aspects of culture and 'realia' and would enjoy finding out about French-speaking celebrities. I learned things that I didn't previously know myself, from this resource.'
