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 lesson, students will be introduced to modal verbs and learn how important they are in every day French. They will form some sentences using a sentence builder before practising using the verb pouvoir in useful sentences. Pouvoir is used to say what you are able to do or have permission to do,  and is used in a range of situations and topics.

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.
