“Le métro parisien”
Novice Low-Mid

Most students have experienced being lost in a new city – it is less likely now because of cell phones and satellite maps. However, taking the wrong subway train, going in the wrong direction in a street can still happen regardless of cell phone availability. This activity relates to the theme of directions and navigation. Students will use their prior knowledge of vocabulary related to this theme, as well as the imperative form of verbs.

About the Pathways Project Materials

Many of the activities on the Pathways Project OER Commons Repository are created by upper-division students at Boise State University and serve as a foundation that our community of practice can build upon and refine. While they are polished, we welcome and encourage collaboration from language instructors to help modify grammar, syntax, and content where needed. Kindly contact us at with any suggestions and we will update the content in a timely manner.
