Téléfrançais – Episode 1

Hey, I have an idea! Let’s put a talking pineapple, a creepy pilot doll, skeletons playing music, and two kids together in a video to teach useful French phrases like Je suis un ananas and Ce n’est pas possible ! Brilliant, right?

Thanks to Dedene for this gem.

    Um, I have the Teacher’s Guide…and am seriously considering showing it to my French II class (9th graders). Telefrancais is the BEST. Don’t knock the pineapple.

    Do it, Rose! I would totally show this video to my French classes too!

    Samayi, there are tons of Passe-Partout videos on youtube as well. Those dolls aren’t as creepy at least!

    My English book in junior high was called “Apple Pie”. Who said that linking language to food was helpful???

    However, the Apple Pie did NOT talk.

    I use this in my class currently – it’s a “cult-fave”. But, any idea where I can get it on DVD? My VHS is soooooooooo old…

    Poor Jacques and Sophie – they must be MY age by now!

    I remember watching this in my grade 6 French immersion class. Awesome! I wish I could find it on DVD. You can, however, get the Passe-Partout shows on DVD from amazon.ca, inetvideo.ca, and others. Also very cool. Funny how freaky puppets and wierd talking pineapples were the norm way back when.
