French in Action


Age Range: 14-Adult (Grades 9-Adult; children with parental supervision)


This portion of the larger Annenberg Learner website provides 52 half-hour video lessons that use the immersion method of teaching to increase French fluency and introduce French culture.

The videos present a humorous continuing story of an American student and a Frenchwoman’s adventures in France. Additional native speakers of all ages and backgrounds not only add to the storyline but enhance the learning process.

Each lesson begins with an episode of the continuing story. The next portion of the lesson clarifies and illustrates the dialog of the story with focus on a specific term. Each lesson also provides opportunities to “participate” in the video by repeating lines. A sampling of lesson topics include: 

  • Planning and Anticipating – greetings, health, surprise, decisiveness, subject pronouns, articles
  • Names and Origins – numbers, commands, necessity
  • Physical Characteristics – appearance, sports, questions, describing yourself
  • Kinship – family relationships and more
  • Describing Others – also games, agreement, time, weather
  • Encounters – conversations, seasons, reflexive verbs, adjectives
  • Occupations – work, buying and spending, days and months of the year
  • Education – talking about occupations, manners
  • Getting Around – telephone, courtesy
  • Food and Drink – food, drink, ordering from a restaurant
  • Transportation and Travel – modes of transportation, expressing fear, admiration
