A very useful French website I’ve recently discovered is Qui connaît un bon (Who knows a good…). All you have to do is:
A PowerPoint with all the French GCSE theme-based vocabulary included in AQA’s new specification (8658).
Do you speak Fench or are you learning French? Do you also have a talent, a passion that you want to share?

Today is #InternationalWomensDay. You’ve probably seen it everywhere. GOOD!
I was just writing on this day to recommend a super lovely book (2 volumes actually) that celebrates extraordinary women (Layers, musicians, writers, astronauts, journalist… even a volcanologist!) that although history did not grant them the tag of ‘superstar’ (to most of them) they deserve it so very much.

Then they explained to me that sometimes they felt a bit ignorant because they didn´t know much about French celebrities the way the French exchange students (that visited us) did know about British and American celebrities. So I went:
Having a browse through pages like TES one realizes that most of us are teachers with hardly any free time in our hands and not graphic designers. However, students find “pretty” presentations and colourful documents more appealing and that’s why I would like to recommend this free website (https://www.canva.com/create-a-design) where you can prepare in no time stunning documents. Also, you will find different dimensions for social media, presentations, cards…
