La classe des confessions (series)
Click here for the animated book trailer
The French Level 1+ novel, La classe des confessions (part 1) is written almost entirely in the present tense. It is the perfect novel for reviewing school vocabulary, classes, relationships, basic French I structures in the Target Language, and, of course "l'amour." Sprinkled with authentic and witty expressions, students will see themselves in the story, as well as their teachers! Although this book is part of a series (2 books), book 1 is a standalone novel...but students would want to read part 2! Synopsis: Charles hates French class with a passion but finds the will to survive when he lays eyes on Justine. She is the reason he "tolerates" his boring class. However, his secret crush is compromised when his teacher decides to "shake things up a bit" in class. A simple writing assignment turns out to be a lethal injection to his social life and by extension his chances with Justine. First, his nosy teacher tries to "set him up with Justine," this plan immediately backfires. Then, the unthinkable happens and Charles is stunned. This turns into one of the most embarrassing moments in his life. Charles invites you to come along on this adventure into La classe des confessions where everyone has a confession, even the teacher!
Bonus: Some students may be dying to see what happens to Charles, and his crazy teacher. For this reason, this bundle contains two bonus novels: Le beau mensonge (second book in the series).
Themes: school supplies, first "crush",relationships, embarrassing moments
Structures: Mostly told in the present tense with a spattering of past tense to keep the flow of the story.
Charles is having a bad day, and it's about to get worse. He leaves French class utterly embarrassed. He had no idea that the teacher was going to partner him up with Justine, the girl he actually writes about in his class essay. Adding insult to injury, the teacher reads his essay in front of the class, even the mean-spirited things he wrote about his teacher. After running into a few more problems in math class, he is faced with the big showdown in the lunchroom. Now, Charles has a difficult decision to make. However, a short story in French class may hold the key to all of his problems, and may ultimately lead to his biggest confession of all. Find out in “Le Beau Mensonge.”
