dis donc! French teaching materials for grades 5 to 9 (ILZ)
The new French workbook “dis donc!” and its accompanying reference book “dis voir!”, both for school years 7 through to 11, are based on the provisions and descriptions set forth in the Swiss curricular framework Lehrplan 21. “dis donc!” is designed to help pupils achieve specific basic skill levels and then build on these through more complex tasks.
In each unit, pupils are required to solve one learning task (tâche). Based on rich, authentic input from the pupils’ real-world experiences, the “activités” help to develop the content, language and strategic means necessary for the solution. Communication skills are also a means to an end and no longer the only goal.
