Contact© French Language Learning Game
“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” Benjamin Franklin
Contact© Language learning game is an innovative way to learn French creatively and putting your communication skills in use.
Contact© is designed for French teachers, for learners at school and at home and for adults attending a language course.
This game is meant for A2 level learners – students and as well grown-up learners – seeking to develop their communication skills by simulating everyday situations and encounters in the city of Paris and challenging them to cope with them.
At times you must figure out the best way to get to Montmartre from the Louvre, at others how to explain to the taxi driver you forgot your wallet at home. Yet in another instance you have got to tell the waiter you ordered the bouillabaisse instead of the coq au vin.
Of course the game is filled with humor, culture, mimicry, acting, discovery, and discussions. The learning takes place almost imperceptibly, marks are not given, creativity and imagination become the propelling forces.
