About

Bienvenue à ce nouveau site!

Le vrai de vrai translates as the real McCoy and that is what this site is all about – a place to collect and share real, authentic French resources that you could use with your language classes. Since it is typically easier to find appropriate authentic resources for our more advanced students, I’ve decided here to concentrate mainly, but not exclusively, on resources that could be adapted or used as they are with beginner to intermediate students.

To help you to find an appropriate resource quickly, choose the most relevant tag from the choices on the bottom left of the home page. If you have any great authentic resources you’d like to add to this collection, drop me a line through the Contact link on this site, or via Twitter on @mfl_Catrin.

This site was inspired by Chispas, an authentic resource site for Spanish teachers – check it out here, it’s great!

Croeso i’r safle newydd yma, Le vrai de vrai! Pwrpas y safle yw creu casgliad o adnoddau Ffrangeg dilys a fedr cael eu defnyddio yn yr ystafell ddosbarth. Gan ei bod yn aml yn haws i ganfod adnoddau dilys addas ar gyfer ein dysgwyr hŷn, mwy rhugl, rwyf wedi penderfynu yma i ganolbwyntio yn fwy ar adnoddau y medrwch addasu neu eu defnyddio fel y maent gyda disgyblion sy’n ddechreuwyr neu ar lefel canolradd – er nad yw hynny o reidrwydd yn reol gadarn!

I’ch cynorthwyo i ganfod adnodd dilys heb orfod chwilota’n ormodol, cofiwch ddewis o’r tagiau sydd ar waelod y dudalen hafan, ar y chwith. Os ydych chi’n gwybod am unrhyw adnodd dilys da hoffech ychwanegu at y casgliad, yna cysylltwch trwy’r ddolen ‘Contact’ ar y safle yma,  neu drwy Drydar ar @mfl_Catrin.

Cafodd y safle yma ei ysbrydoli gan Chispas, safle adnoddau Sbaeneg dilys – medrwch ei ganfod yma os hoffech fwrw golwg arno!
