Section: INTERMEDIATE SPANISH, SPAN011
Class theme/topics discussed:
Expressions with colors
How did you pick this theme or topic?
We use the colors for a lot of expressions that are often used. I decided to show these to the students.
How did you present the material? (handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
We started thinking of the names for the different colors in Spanish and try and look for expressions with colors either in Spanish or English. Then, in groups or pairs, they had pair the expressions with colors with their meaning.
How did students react?
They liked the idea, not that much the activity.
Did they engage with each other and you?
Yes, they engaged with each other, not so much with me.
What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
Please attach a copy.
See next page.
Would you recommend this activity for a future class?
Why or why not?
Maybe try and change some things so that it’s not so repetitive and make them actually learn and remember some of these expressions.
