Today my French 1 students worked on building a short survey. We are working on clothes and preferences. They built the questions, asked the questions to their classmates and took notes of the answers. I like this kind of activity because students are actually using French and they are communicating (am I being understood? Do I understand what the other is saying?). But the activity turned a bit "messy" as everybody got up to ask questions and give answers...
How do you handle this kind of activities? Any tips to make it work better?
Do you encounter the same kind of problems?
