Les people et les stars - Reading for pleasure?

Loathe them or hate them, you can't switch on the TV or open a newspaper without seeing "celebrities".

It seems that these days everyone is obsessed with the cult of the celebrity.

Everyone except me, of course.


Even the French are becoming curiously interested.

To prove this, here is a list of trashy magazine/website links so that your students can find out who is "dating" whom, when and with what... in French.

  • Actuastar - loads of "scoops" and "news" about "celebs" form around the world. currently obsessed with Kim Kardashian's feet. (I have no idea who this is!)

  • Gossip -  currently obsessed with a young lady who goes by the name of Nabilla. (Again, I have no idea who this is, either!)

  • Closer (les stars et les news people en live - their words, not mine!) - some stuff on Eurovision. (I've heard of this!)

So there you have it. 

A brilliant way to interest the majority of your students in reading for pleasure in the Target Language.
