Class theme/topics discussed: Dating

Goal of the class: to learn vocabulary about dating

How did you structure the class?

Warm-up: True or false. Each student must say something they’ve done in their life, it can be true or false. The class has to guess if they are true or false by asking questions.

Activity 1: Speed dating. Each student has a profile and they have to talk to the others to find their match.

Activity 2: discussion about pick up lines. Can they explain the ones in English in Spanish? Do they work in their Spanish translation?

Activity 3: In groups they create their own pick up lines.

Activity 4: we watch a campaign against street harassment in Peru and we discuss the thin line between a nice compliment and harassment.

What worked well in this class? What did not work?

They engaged so much in the speed dating activity!

They were embarrassed to talk about pick up lines so we didn’t really do the activity about creating their own. I told them to think about some ideas for next class (in English) so we’ll finish then.

If you have a more detailed lesson plan, please attach it below (OK to use target language for that). Please attach any handouts as well.
