The joy of being an L2 teacher is that I can use totally elementary English concepts and use them with the more advanced French learners. What a good way to incorporate descriptive writing! (And if it was an animal you SAW, you can use passe compose and imparfait- genius, i know). Oh, and it's FREE.
