Section: INTERMEDIATE SPANISH, SPAN011
Class theme/topics discussed:
Meeting other people; speed dating.
How did you pick this theme or topic?
I found this funny activity on the Internet and I thought could be interesting to share it with them.
How did you present the material? (handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
We created new identities for all of them dividing them in both men and women. They needed to find a picture for their new identity and fill in the basic data. Afterwards, they would be in 5 minutes dates with each of their classmates and finally they needed to choose who they liked most.
How did students react?
They LOVED the activity and had a lot of fun.
Did they engage with each other and you?
They engaged perfectly with each other and in the end, they could perfectly explain their reasons to the rest of the class.
What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
A chart with some basic questions, newspaper and magazines to cut a picture out of them.
