DVD PREVIEW
 

Le Marché d’Uzès takes us to the heart of one of the largest and most popular markets
in Southern France . Lying just to the west of Provence , Uzès is a small town with
a large history. It is situated in an area where many specialties meet – charcuterie
from the Cévennes, bull meat from the Camargue and fish from the Mediterranean.
Every Saturday, the Grand Marché,with more than 200 stalls, entertainers and musicians,
spills out from the Place aux Herbes on to the boulevards of the town.


The various produce sellers - the cheese merchant, the fruit & vegetable man, the
florist, the showman peddling his kitchen utensil, the soap manufacturer, and the
alcoholic beverages maker - along with musicians and a mime, provide us with the patter, the exchanges, the vocabulary and the atmosphere of a traditional market.


 

CDROM : Teacher's notes, full transcriptions, bilingual vocabularies, activities,
puzzles and slide shows.

'I particularly liked the market one because it has so much scope for activities at various levels and is visually interesting throughout.'
Verna Morris, Head of French, Dunstan High School, Alexandra New Zealand.
