Plan to go to France this summer and dd's are doing a bit of French at school. We have the Muzzy DVD's biut I'd like a fun website or other idea for getting them to speak more and enjoy it ready for our trip. ANyone know any good sites?

This one www.hello-world.com/French/games/children.php has some good bits - conversation, songs, games etc. Lots of it is free but some you have to be a member for.

Don't know how old chn are but Northumberland Grid for Learning has some stories available online eg Goldilocks
[http://ngfl.northumberland.gov.uk/languages/defau lt.htm

Videos and games:
www.cartoonito.co.uk/french

Is this any help? Canadian but seems to have quite a bit, maybe not fun, fun..
www.learnalberta.ca/content/flbla/index.html

This has some games but probably need to be able to read French. Think that only highlighted ones are fully accessible from home i.e. with sound. It's free after 4 pm

Looks like there's some stuff for secondary as well...

If I can think of anything else, I'll let you know.

Thanks for this. Dd's are Years 2 and 4, so we only need simple stuff for now. Wouldn't mind improving my French too though, the O-level was a long time ago!

Northumberland grid link is wrong, you'd probably work it out but here is, I hope, the right one.

there's a gap in the world 'default' in the link. Hang on!

It's a really good site. Spent ages looking at the big black crow and the sly fox on there last night

ngfl.northumberland.gov.uk/languages/default.htm

Do have a look!
