  • These slides are amazing. I have used them as is and added my own. This year I used the basic format to create special person daily routine edition, and I basically taught the daily routine unit nearly 100% in the format of of special person interviews, notetaking, and quizzes. The students love talking/learning/reading/writing about themselves and their classmates.

  • I was surprised how much my students liked doing special person interviews. I tried doing them on my own - writing words on the board to aid in comprehension and trying to think of questions on the fly - but I found these slides made the experience much more engaging and rewarding.

  • So, I kept telling myself I was just going to save my money and stop buying things, that I did not need this. Well, I caved and I'm soooo glad I did!! This is a very comprehensive and engaging slideshow with a variety of special person questions scaffolded for different levels. My favorite part is that it is editable so I can delete or add more questions or include more or less help for my students. I recommend this to everyone doing or wishing to do special person interviews. Oh, and my students like the certificate for being the star of the day!

  • I find la personne spéciale to be a very effective tool to get students to speak. I even used this resource to get my students to speak to visiting students from France.
