  • I love these units! This one has been a great way to enrich our unit on schooling in France. My students were fascinated by the university content and are producing "prend" and "veut être" regularly and with ease now!

  • I have been extremely satisfied with all of the dos somas curriculum. IT has been a great tool for teaching my French 1 class. While there are occasional errors as they were translated from Spanish to French, there are a great deal of creative and fun activities for CI teachers. My kids are never bored with these units.

  • Great resource for in class or homeschool. Easy to follow, specially if you already use the curriculum map.

  • I used the slides to introduce vocab in a distance synchronous format. The material is so well organized you can easily save it as PDF and students can access it asynchronously. I used the stories to review vocabulary from the unit and as homework students drew out the story or wrote it out in different person/perspective (this worked better with more advanced students).

  • I bought the bundle this unit is part of and I like that it flows nicely into the next unit with review activities that focus on previous units
