  • Give students practice using clothing vocabulary to describe models in current défilés de mode by Paris designers

  • You may wish to brainstorm with students keywords in French that will help direct them to French-language Web sites to complete this WebQuest.

  • Other vocabulary students might want to use:

     un défilé de modefashion show
     le cotoncotton
     la soiesilk
     la lainewool
     le cuirleather
     les bottesboots
     une écharpe, un foulardscarf
     un chapeauhat
  • At the end of the activity, have students discuss in small groups what they have learned. Then have students read their favorite descriptions to the class.


  • If students are able to print pictures, post them in the classroom. Have students post their descriptions next to the pictures. Students could create their own défilé de mode by reading their descriptions to the class while showing the pictures. Students could also use PowerPoint® to create their own virtual défilé, writing all of the descriptions in French and reading them out loud as they show their slides to the class.
