Song: En Classe Je Parle Français- All about that Bass Parody

I have decided, that this year, I want to be the "Weird Al" of French Teachers.

So to kick that off, I wrote some lyrics to go with the song "All About that Bass" that enforce speaking French in class.  Would you like to hear it?


Fun, huh?  I'm teaching in to my classes now, and hopefully they will create a music video in the future for it.  If you want to use it with your classes, feel free!  Here are the lyrics:

If you wanted to sing along to it, you could find a karaoke track on YouTube like this one, but minimize the screen or don't show it, so the students have to use the French lyrics!

If you do use it, and make a totally cool music video, please share it!  I would love to see it!

  1. Absolutely love the lyrics you wrote! I have a group of students already primed to create a music video using your lyrics and the music track for the purposes of promoting French in our school. Un grand merci!

  2. Quelle idée géniale! Bravo! Puis-je te demander où tu as trouvé la bande sonore sans parole que tu as utilisé pour pouvoir enregistrer ta voix par dessus?
