French - discussion & debate resources on "L'environnement" -- A level (advanced)

If you're looking for resources to help your advanced French students (A2 in the UK) with discussions / debates etc, check out the many resources available from . A while back I came across a word doc containing vocab and a variety of opinions on a whole range of A2 topics to help students to prepare for discussion.

I've taken this vocab and these discussion / opinion phrases and made them into a load of TaskMagic3 exercises. They're on the ready-made exercises page of the TaskMagic website at The many files available on this link require TaskMagic3. If you haven't got it, you can get a 30-day trial download from

I printed out a load of pdf worksheets from the TaskMagic3 files based on the 3 environment sub-sections of the word doc mentioned above (pages 4, 5 & 6). There are 19 pdf files in 3 groups of 6 (ie. 6 pdfs per text) + a vocab list (matching exercise). I've also included the 3 TaskMagic3 Mix&Gap files (mtx3) and the 1 TaskMagic3 TextMatch file (mdl3) from which the pdfs were printed. These provide access to loads of interactive exercises, but obviously you need TM3 to access them. If you haven't got TM3, you can get a 30-day trial download from

The screen images show the student front pages for each of the TaskMagic3 files. (In TaskMagic, each of the thumbnail images links to an interactive exercise.)
