Don’t have time to search through Youtube to put together a French Christmas videos list?
Don’t worry because I’ve put together this list just for you!
French Christmas Videos List
I’ve selected 10 videos for you and this list includes a little bit of everything: longer videos, shorter videos, stories, songs, and so much more. Check them out!
- Mini (TFO) chante Noël: l’arbre de Noël
In my opinion, this video is less about what the characters say (or sing) than it is about the images. I would play it without sound and get kids to describe everything they see: the objects, the actions, etc. Great for Christmas vocabulary practice. They have other similar videos.
- Didou – Dessine moi un sapin de Noël
This very cute video talks about writing letters to Santa Claus, the gifts kids want for Christmas, and how to draw a Christmas tree!
- Mon beau sapin
Since we’re talking about Christmas trees, we have to sing this traditional Christmas song! This video shows the lyrics of the song so kids can follow along.
- Quand le père Noël
“Quand le père Noël vient me visiter, il descend par la cheminée” – this line is going to stick and be playing over and over in your head after watching this video. Sorry! 😀
- Petit papa Noël
Such a beautiful song that your kids will be able to sing along as the video includes the lyrics.
- Douce nuit
O Holy Night in French. Can Christmas be complete without this song?
- Vive le vent
The French version of Jingle Bells is another Christmas classic!
- Youpi! C’est Noël
A 12-minute story that talks about buying a Christmas tree, meeting a friend who doesn’t celebrate Christmas (he celebrates Hannukah), decorating the tree, family traditions, and much more that will give you and your students lots to discuss.
- Didou et l’assistant du père Noël
This 22-minute Christmas story might be too long for younger kids to watch all at once, but you could break it down into parts. It’s the story of Santa Claus, an elf who’s afraid of heights and afraid of the dark, and includes a tutorial on how to draw a reindeer!
This is a wordless video, so how can this help your students practice more French? Well, the images are bright and attractive and even though there are no spoken words, there’s a very clear narrative. Have your students watch the video, then write down what the story is about. If you’d like them to practice speaking, pair them up and have them share with their partners what they think happened.
Oh, and don’t forget to use Safeshare when presenting videos in your classroom. For this and other video tips, check out Mistakes Teachers Make Using Videos in the French Classroom.
