The Education Ministry has commissioned a series of filmed lessons for pupils, to be shown on France 4. There are classes in English for lycée level, every Wednesday, starting on 25 March.
The first lesson is on written comprehension, for 1ère and Terminale, around a letter to Judy Garland, an extract from Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira (2014). It will be followed by at least one more programme per week. You can watch the programme on TV, or online from the time of broadcast.
And here is the link to the powerpoint and the text Lynda and Mélanie used for the class, and the powerpoint and video Lynda and Erwan Gouraud used for the Banksy listening comprehension. (Plus all the other documents for the Lumni classes at different levels.)

And the third, on April 8, on synthesising and comparing documents on the theme of pop music. April 17's programme is on musical comedies: love and the American dream!
