This is a good assignment for the following reasons:
- All students are engaged in speaking French.
- Students are talking about themselves, which makes it personal and interesting.
- Communication is more authentic because they aren't reading what they're saying.
- Everyone is saying something different, so those who are listening are learning new words.
- Anxiety is low because students are presenting to groups of 3 rather than addressing the whole class.
- Each student is making their presentation twice.
