I couldn’t think of a more appropriate title for this one –  let me know if you can!

This activity is one I’ve used with my adult learners of French.

The aim is to ‘mouth’ words in the target language to a partner. They must then say the word out loud or translate. I found this particularly useful as it makes people really focus on getting the right ‘shapes’ for vowels in particular.

You could do this with a predefined list of words or with a topic in mind.
