TEACHER’S GUIDE TO ACCOMPANY Marie-Antoinette et le collier de la mort
Level 2 Reader – Historical Drama, Past Tense
Unique Word Count: 225
In 1772, France’s King Louis XV commissions Parisian jewelers, Messieurs Bassange and Boehmer, to create a diamond necklace. The king dies before he pays for the elaborate multi-million-dollar piece, leaving the jewelers strapped for cash and struggling to find a buyer. Convinced by a friend to win back the favor of the queen, Marie Antoinette, Cardinal de Rohan steps up to buy it on her behalf. After a 13-year search, the desperate jewelers think their problem is finally solved… until they find themselves at the center of a scandal that will change the course of history. This tale of greed, deception and fraud is based on the true story of Marie-Antoinette and the famous necklace scandal.
This story strategically weaves high-level language structures into a compelling story, which based on high-frequency vocabulary. Even upper level language students need repeated exposure to language structures in order to acquire them, and Fluency Matters’ advanced beginner readers maintain a high frequency factor of core language structures, thus helping learners progress beyond typical proficiency levels. However, do not focus on language structures or the advanced grammatical features embedded in this story. Rather, focus on enjoying the story! The more you enjoy it, the more you will acquire French without even realizing it! Happy reading!
