Language and Level (intermediate or advanced class): Spanish Intermediate
Class theme/topics discussed: Job interviews
Goal of the class: To learn vocabulary and to learn how to act in a job interview in Spanish
How did you structure the class?
Activity 1: to introduce the vocabulary I will give some students a word and others students will have a concept. They have to match the word with its concept by talking with their classmates. (see attachment)
Activity 2: We watch a video about a job interview and comment it as a class.
Activity 3: We watch a second video, a less serious one, a comment it as a class as well.
Activity 4: We try to come up with the structure of an interview, what language they use.
Activity 5: Role playing. In pairs they will get one situation. They must act out an interview and deal with the problem written on their card. After this, so they can change roles, they will act out another card.
What worked well in this class? What did not work?
The first video was a little dark but they enjoyed the second one. They were very into the roleplaying.
The first activity was harder than I expected, I had to help them a lot and we ended up doing it as a class instead of everyone finding the answers on their own.
