Section: ADVANCED SPANISH, SPAN013
Class theme/topics discussed:
How did you pick this theme or topic?
I decided to talk about a topic that really interested them, so I picked youth people in Spanish Speaking countries.
How did you present the material? (handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
First they needed to fill in a formulary to become member of a very famous Spanish Network (Tuenti) and then we discussed issues that affect youth people thanks to the equivalent site of FMyLife in Spanish: Asco de Vida. I took extract from the site and they needed to rate them and explain them to the others.
How did students react?
They loved the extracts. They found them hilarious and understood everything in them.
Did they engage with each other and you?
Yes, they engaged with each other very well and also with me.
What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
Extract from the sites.
