How did you structure the class?
Pre-warm up (10’): Students are asked some questions about the Superbowl match that happened the previous weekend.
Warm-up (15’) Interviews: Students get a piece of paper and ask questions to other students about the importance of such a sport event in the country.
Brainstorm (5’): Students brainstorm adjectives to describe sports
Activity 2 (30’): Each student receives a famous Spanish sport player. Then, they have to look up online what that person does, and the achievements that the person has accomplished in their career.
Each student will first describe the rules of the sport that apply to the person they have; the rest will have to guess what sport they are talking about. Then they will proceed to describe the person and career.
What technology, media or props did you use? (internet resources, playmobiles, handouts, etc.)
- Slips of paper with sport celebrities

What worked well in this class? What did not work?
Very successful class in which students could share all they know about sport and learn a bit about the importance of these sports in Spain. This particular class loves sports and it was easy to engage them with this topic.
How could this class be improved/ modified?
Time management, if the class takes too long it would be great to split it into two classes.
