Section: INTERMEDIATE SPANISH, SPAN011
Class theme/topics discussed:
How did you pick this theme or topic?
I continued talking about youth, so this topic was next.
How did you present the material? (handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
We started playing a little bit of Mafia as a warm up before moving to the role play.
I asked them to tell me who was their best or worst roommate and they loved it! They were all eager to talk, all of them had funny stories and in the end we couldn’t do the last activity because of lack of time.
How did students react?
They loved talking about their roommates, and also liked to hear how it works in Spanish speaking countries, since many of them would like to study abroad.
Did they engage with each other and you?
They did very well.
What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
Please attach a copy.
Would you recommend this activity for a future class?
Why or why not?
They like talking about something that concerns them and had a great time.
