“Le Petit Bac” – Why not play this famous school game at home with the whole family?
Everyone can use the French vocabulary learnt during our French classes or at school! It’s so easy: One player chooses a letter and everyone has to write down a word starting with this letter for each category (ie girl’s name, boy’s name, a country, a vegetable, a celebrity, an animal, a sport, a plant….you can choose before playing any categories you want!)
After sharing your answers, tot up your scores – each unique correct answer (nobody else chose that word) counts for 2 points, each correct answer given by more than one player counts for 1 point.
