Approaches:
This is a gorgeous song - good pace - clear and resonant voice , which lends itself wonderfully to a lipsynch activity

Yo may wish to show the class the lyrics first to get them into the swing of it or go straight into the clip
Ask the class to synch their mouth movements with the voice (not to speak or sing the words) and observe how they are shaping their lips and tongues

Rationale:
It's a physical warm-up to prepare / practise speaking

Outcomes:
Students might also observe the contractions : J'sais pas etc. and compare them with English

Topics or themes:
Standalone

Grammar:

Strategies:
Musical memory

How much time required:
5 minutes +
