new French vocabulary (although it will work in any language).
After asking children to repeat any new vocabulary we then say
it in different ways so that they don't get bored. Some ideas
that we have come up with is singing the words in an operatic
style, shouting the words, saying them in a "posh" voice or
a French accent. A particularly effective way is to stage whisper
the words as this will help them with pronunciation. The children
love the different ways of saying vocabulary and are constantly
coming up with new ideas.'
