French games for beginners :
These games for French beginners are perfect for a French 1 class, beginning Core French students, or young French immersion students. With basic topics like adjectives, clothing, family, school, food, and present tense verbs, these are a match for students working on the fundamentals of French.
For French 2 :
These games are a great way to practice beginning topics with students who have attained some speaking and writing proficiency. With practice for topics like the passé composé, French reflexive verbs, and object pronouns, these games are great for a French 2 class or beginning Core class working on these concepts. They can also be very effective for upper elementary and middle school French immersion.
For French 3+:
These games are great for students moving to or in the intermediate range who are working on French grammar concepts such as the imparfait, the futur simple, le subjonctif, and si clauses. Students love practicing verb conjugation and vocabulary with engaging activities. Students still benefit from movement and play as they work with more complex grammar, and these engaging activities have been a favorite of my middle school and high schoolers for years!
These holiday-themed and seasonal games are great for all ages. From vocabulary acquisition to French verb conjugation, there’s something for everyone.
