A fun way of revising vocabulary for countries and nationalities – through entries for the Eurovision Song Contest 2023. This complete lesson is suitable for upper key stage 2 or key stage 3 French. 

Students start by working out the countries of music groups and singers taking part in the competition.

The resource then recaps the following rules:

  • capital letters for country names but lower-case letters for adjectives
  • masculine and feminine forms of adjectives, plus the difference in pronunciation.

Students practise changing adjectives of nationality from masculine to feminine then do a pairwork (information gap) activity to practise pronunciation, dictation and reading aloud.

In a team contest at the end of the lesson, students work out or guess the nationalities of five song titles.

The PowerPoint contains a starter activity and animated versions of the questions and answers.

An extract from the answers to task 1:

2. Blanca Paloma vient d’Espagne. Elle est espagnole. Elle chante en espagnol.

3. Remo Forrer vient de Suisse. Il est suisse, mais il chante en anglais.

4. Gustaph vient de Belgique. Il est belge, mais il chante en anglais.

5. Voyager vient d’Australie. C’est un groupe australien. Ils chantent en anglais.
