Francophone Pop Culture Personalities Biographies

Biographies about Francophone pop culture personalities for late level 1 and 2. 

Novice (Levels 1-2), Intermediate (Levels 2-4)

This product features one-page, easy to understand, biography of 10 Francophone pop culture personalities with a comprehension activity for each. The biographies are written in simple French and are intended to be comprehensible to first year French students and beyond. The comprehension activities are true/false, A or B, or reading comprehension questions in English. The kind of information shared about each figure is similar so that students benefit from the natural repetition of vocabulary across all biographies. Some words are footnoted to support comprehension.

This resource includes some figures that speak French as a first or primary language and some figures that have studied French and speak it as an additional language with measurable proficiency.


  • Clara Luciani
  • Omar Sy
  • Timothée Chalamet
  • Joakim Noah
  • Cœur de Pirate
  • Maître Gims
  • Serena Williams
  • Tamar Weber-Fillion
  • Djimon Hounsou
  • Régina Chassagne

Please familiarize yourself with these figures before making the biographies available to your students. Especially if you teach in a parochial school, your students' parents and administrators might take issue with you connecting your students to figures that live wild lives and sing songs with explicit lyrics. Be warned!
