For the 20th anniversary of the publication of the first Harry Potter book, this A1+-level article aims at allowing pupils to rediscover well-known fictional characters, perhaps for the first time with the English names. It's a good opportunity to help them develop reading strategies, using what they know to help them understand new words and concepts.

Vocabulary and structures:

  • Vocabulary (fantasy)
  • simple present et simple past/preterite
  • numbers (cardinal and ordinal)
