Activity Overview

Creating a comic is a great way for students to practice using the important words and phrases necessary for getting to know another person. In this activity, students will create a 4-5 frame dialogue where two characters get to know each other. Vocabulary and grammar demonstrated in this storyboard can include some or all of the following:

  • Words of introduction (je m’appelle…)
  • Question words like qui, , and comment
  • Character traits
  • Nationalities
  • Negatives
  • Basic conjugations of être

The conversation in the storyboard should be plausible, and the length and requirements of the storyboard may vary, depending on the skills your class is focusing on. Conclude the activity by having students present their scenes to the class, reading the French dialogue aloud.
