As students begin their courses of beginning level French, they will learn to express likes and dislikes. This vocabulary naturally pairs with learning the adverb construction of “ne...pas”. Breathe life into your early practice exercises by allowing students to depict their opinions as they express them. For visual learners, this will help reinforce their basic vocabulary retention.
In this activity, students will use a T-Chart to express what “j’aime” in one column and what “je n’aime pas” in the other. Keep each row consistent by requiring that students choose a specific category for each row. Younger students may benefit from pre-selected topics to help them organize their categories.
To practice facility with multiple verbs, require students to rotate between -er verbs such as aimer, adorer, détester, and préférer. The example storyboard demonstrates a use of negation with a variety of verbs in order to avoid repetition of any verb more than once.

Create a T Chart expressing your likes and dislikes in four different categories. Consider discussing your preferences for books, sports, music, classes, movies, clothing, food, animals, weather, or other topics.
Use the verbs aimer, adorer, détester, and préférer. Make sure to avoid using any particular expression or verb more than once. You may use each verb a second time if you turn it into a negative.
