Sur le pont d’Avignon

No Title

Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube.

This video is the 27th in a series of videos of nursery rhymes in French. It can be found on my YouTube channel. Please do subscribe to it: I think you will find my videos useful!

This one (click here for the video) is about the well-known song "Sur le Pont d'Avignon"!

How do my videos differ from other videos you can watch on YouTube? They were made with YOU in mind: either as a teacher of French to little ones, or as a parent who is keen for their child(ren) to learn French.

I enunciate the words very clearly so it is easy to copy them (no need to slow down the video!). The words to the rhyme are displayed in the video so you and the children can read them, should you want to. It comes with a translation of the words in English, great if you are not a French specialist. It also comes with extra background info and ideas on how you can exploit the video (see document below).
