This educational resource based on Nilesh Patel's A Love Supreme encourages pupils to think and talk about film using the French language, and helps them with the technical skill of forming the imperative. Suitable for students aged 10-14, this resource is principally designed for use in the classroom to support French Modern Foreign Language. However, it also encourages engagement with Indian culture through food and with art-house cinema.

You can download the accompanying  Food in India PowerPoint Presentation,  worksheets within the teachers'' notes and the curriculum links document.

Updating our resources

We have developed a large catalogue of educational resources since launching in 2013, and some references and terminology will inevitably have dated as society and language evolves. We are aware of this and will be updating resources when our production schedule allows.

What our educators say

"As an alternative provision for learners who are not in mainstream school we use your resources in a slightly different way as they generally find it hard to watch a full length film. They are, however fantastic. "
