www.cartescochons.com This is an excellent site for foreign language posters, stickers, bookmarks and song books. 

 www.duolingo.com  Is a great, free site for learning languages. I am currently using it to learn Portuguese, but it offers many languages. It is useful for any teacher wishing to freshen up their language skills or improve their accent. I haven't used it in school, but there is  the facility to use it with a class. Children can work through it at their own pace and it logs their progress. Good fun!

French (or Spanish)ipod101 on youtube is very useful for listening exercises. It offers several levels, the highest of which presents a good challenge for older, more advanced learners. Worth looking at. Also available in other languages.

 Alain Le Lait has songs on Youtube covering many topics. These really get into your head! A great way to learn when you keep singing them to yourself. Some are also available in English for children new to the country. Here are some of the French songs:

J'aime les Voitures. (Colours.)

Il Pleut.

Ma Famille.

Des Os, Il en Faut. (Parts of the body.)
