Miraflores Teacher Resource Materials - Parcours 1C
What a funny combination: Napoléon, Molière and Astérix! Introduce your students to these three icons of French culture in your first year French class. Napoléon serves as a wonderful introduction to the vocabulary of the family because it combines the family with the historic reality. The unit on Molière, who is usually taught at a more advanced level where there are a lot fewer students, permits your students to do easy comparisons between school plays and Molière’s works. Finally, Astérix introduces a cartoon character who is emblematic of the French speaking world.
