This French reading comprehension activity will teach your students about Victor Lustig, the man who sold the Eiffel Tower.  It is suitable for novice-high/intermediate-low students with teacher guidance and higher level students to work independently.  If you teach AP French, this reading can be useful in giving your students practice reading non-fiction articles for the interpretive section of the test.  The reading can lead to discussion or writing activities to include the other two modes of communication.

 

Can you believe that a con man sold the Eiffel Tower to an unsuspecting victim and got away with it – and almost did it a second time? The little-known story of Victor Lustig will interest and surprise your students. The Eiffel Tower scam wasn’t his first con, just his biggest one. Learn about how he started cheating people out of their money and getting so good at it that he was able to convince someone that they could buy the tower from him!

  • Reading in French about Victor Lustig
  • 7 multiple-choice comprehension questions in English
  • 7 multiple-choice comprehension questions in French
