Language Resident Name: Hugo Briones Cáceres
Day and Date: Wednesday, January 31st
Language and Level (intermediate or advanced class): Spanish Conversation Intermediate
Class theme/topics discussed:
How to act and react in certain situations
Goal of the class:
- Create dialogues based on a situation showing how to act in them.
How did you structure the class?
Working in groups, students are given a specific situation. They will have to create a dialogue using the correct grammar and vocabulary. They have to make the correct adjustments according to the context they are supposed to be in (language, currency, measuring, formality, etc.). Then, they are asked to enact their situations in front of the class, ready to get feedback from their classmates.
What technology, media or props did you use? (internet resources, playmobiles, handouts, etc.)
What worked well in this class? What did not work?
The activity worked quite well. It helped the students to work in their confidence with their language skills (grammar and vocabulary).
How could this class be improved/ modified?
Maybe it is better to use two classes for the activity, one for creating and one for presenting.
