Bonjour la classe,

Ça va? How are you?

I hope you are keeping your French up.  This time we are going learn about La Famille.  Your objective is to make your own Family Tree (arbre généalogique) in French. The first thing you are going to do is to learn a lot of new vocabulary that you will use in your “arbre généalogique”, with the focus on accurate sounding.  To help you there are video clips and songs to listen to. The powerpoint has lots of pictures and sounds to help you learn the language you need.  Enjoy this learning. 

Bon courage,                  Madame Ferguson
