The aim of this study is to determine how fun activities in class can influence the motivation and the oral competence of secondary school pupils learning French as a foreign language. This is done by asking 22 pupils belonging to the 8th and 9th grade through a survey, how they feel when they must talk French in class. They also get the opportunity to share what activities they feel help them to talk more and as a result, acquire better knowledge of the studied language. Simultaneously, an interview with three French teachers in Sweden allows us to better understand their point of view on this same oral competence and know more about the various activities they use to organise in class. The results show that the oral competence must be practiced on a regular basis and from the very beginning of the study of the foreign language. Pupils usually like fun activities to develop their competences, which is an important point because of the strong influence of motivation on scholar results and success.
