Update to Père Fouettard story

I got around to updating the French Christmas story of Père Fouettard, since it’s been a couple of years. I put in some new images (photos for the most part, not clip art!) as well as updating the useful links in that section. There are new updated videos with the newest windows from Printemps.

The story is about Père Fouettard, who is a bit depressed because nobody ever gets excited to see him at Christmas time. No, it’s all about his buddy Père Noël. Anyway, the two hatch a plan that should make them both happy but it just ends up making more trouble in the end. The story is suitable for intermediate and advanced French learners. It includes both the passé composé and the imparfait. You can buy it here.

The update includes the French Christmas story for intermediate or advanced French learners, including a glossary with words that might be new. There are also worksheets with comprehension questions in both English and French. There is an illustrate the story activity, a who/what/where/when/why/how activity, an infographic about Christmas in France. You will also find an answer key and resources for learning more about how the holidays are celebrated in France.
