Robin Sedman-SmithHost: I currently teach French in a school in Shropshire and am learning Spanish. I lived in Germany for two years, and spent 13 years teaching German in a grammar school where I still work as a boarding tutor.

In this short lesson, students will see lots of examples of the past tense in French and practise forming simple accurate sentences using a sentence builder, flashcard practice and an interactive conversation. There is no learning of tables and missing verb exercises, just snappy spoken exercises.  This is a fantastic lesson to learn how to correctly say and write simple past tense sentences in French. Students will be safe in the knowledge that what they learn in these short sessions are essential to excel and progress their language skills to the next level.
