Film titles and Wikipedia

Hello everyone!

J'aime 'Amis' (I love 'Friends'), J'adore 'Congelé' (I love 'Frozen')...

Translating titles is quite a challenging task for pupils, particularly when some titles are translated, some aren't, and some are completely changed to suit the language!!!

But I have the solution! Wikipedia for once can be a reliable source and gives the correct film titles in France (or anywhere!).

Pupils simply go on Wikipedia, enter the name of the film in English (for example: Frozen), then 'français' from the left sidebar and TA DA!

Have fun searching for different film titles with your pupils! You can also give them a list of French film titles and ask them to guess which films they are!
