Class theme/topics discussed:
SPANISH FOOD: LAS TAPAS
How did you pick this theme or topic?
It is a well-known Spanish tradition and it served as an introduction for the topic of the first Study Break: Spanish gastronomy. Las tapas.
How did you present the material? (handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
I used a hand out to brainstorm vocabulary and a hand out with three conversation games about food.
How did students react?
Students liked the game. All of them are familiar with the food of any Spanish-speaking country because all of them lived in a Spanish-speaking country last year.
Did they engage with each other and you?
Yes. They talked a lot and they enjoyed the games.
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?
All of them could talk about it and exchange their personal opinions about food.
