      • Teach students about an aspect of French-speaking culture
    • Presentation ideas
  1. 1. Food: Find out a traditional dish from a country that speaks the language and make it for your family. This must be something you’ve never had before.

  1. 2. Food: Go to a restaurant that serves food from a country that speaks the language. Try something new—it doesn’t count if it’s something you’ve had before. Ask the waiter to tell you about the dishes that are on the menu.

  1. 3. Martial arts: Learn martial arts that come from a country that speaks the language, for example, kung fu (Chinese) or tae kwon do (Korean). If possible, attend a class. Otherwise, find a video of a class online and follow along.

  1. 4. Dance: Learn dance that comes from a country that speaks the language, for example, flamenco from Spain. If possible, attend a class. Otherwise, find a video of a class online and follow along.

  1. 5. TV: Watch a TV show from a country/community that speaks the language, for example, a Korean drama or a French Netflix show (you can put on English subtitles so you know what the characters are saying while you also listen). It needs to be a TV show for people who speak the language, NOT a show that was made to help you learn the language. Note: It is the responsibility of you and your parents/guardians to choose a TV show that you feel is appropriate.

  1. 6. Movie: Watch a movie from a country/community that speaks the language (you can put on English subtitles so you know what the characters are saying while you also listen). An American film that is dubbed into the language doesn’t count. Note: It is the responsibility of you and your parents/guardians to choose a TV show that you feel is appropriate.

  1. 7. Talk to someone: Interview someone from a country/community where the language is spoken. Be sure to plan in advance what to ask them. Some potential questions:
    1. a. Does your culture have holidays that are different from mainstream American holidays? What are they? What are they celebrating? How do you celebrate them?
    2. b. What does the landscape look like where you’re from? Are there mountains? Is it hot?
    3. c. Are you religious? What religion? What are some of the things you do to practice this religion? What’s the most important thing this religion teaches?
    4. d. What would you tell someone else from your culture who was going to move to Utah about what to expect and how to prepare?
    5. e. What is something that your home country/culture is particularly famous for? Tell me about it.
    6. f. What is something you’d want more people to know about your home country/culture?

  1. 8. Cultural Event: Attend a cultural celebration or a gathering where people from the country/culture where the language is spoken get together.

  1. 9. Club: Attend a meeting of a club or organization that gets together to practice the language. One place to look for this information is on meetup.com—but only with your parent/guardian’s approval.

10.Holiday: Celebrate a holiday from a country where the language is spoken. Learn about what the holiday celebrates, what traditions there are, what people do, what food is eaten, and so on. After you do your research, throw a party! Be sure to include family and/or friends. (Note: You don’t have to celebrate the holiday on the date it’s celebrated.)

11.News: Learn about some of the current issues that affect a country/community where the language is spoken. Read several news stories to find out about their current events (remember, the project must take at least two hours). Be sure to get information from several different sources.

12.Art: Learn about the art that comes from the country/community where the language is spoken. Preferably, find an art museum or exhibit with art from the country. If this isn’t available, look online.

13.Book: Read a book about a country/community where the language is spoken. This could be non-fiction, or it might be a novel that takes place in the country. It might be a book that comes from another country originally, but it doesn’t have to be. Include the name of the book in your proposal.

14.YouTube: Watch videos online that come from a country/community where the language is spoken. These might all be about one topic (for example, tips for saving money or makeup tutorials), or they might be from a variety of topics. Remember, it is the responsibility of you and your parents to choose content you feel is appropriate.

15.Music/Music Videos: Find songs and/or music videos from a country/community where the language is spoken. Remember, it is the responsibility of you and your parents to choose content you feel is appropriate.
