Conversation Class Lesson Summary

Language Resident Name: JOSE GOMEZ

Day and Date: 11/09/2017

(Class in the FLRC)

 

Language and Level (intermediate or advanced class): Advanced

 

Class theme/topics discussed: Traveling

Goal of the class: Students learn travel related vocabulary, and tools to travel in Spanish

 

How did you structure the class?

 Head’s up: Movie night “Vivir es Fácil con los Ojos Cerrados”

 Warm-up (5’): Students watch a travelling video on Youtube to set the tone of the class

 

Activity 1(10’): Small discussion ¿Why do you travel? Students are divided into groups and each of them will argue about the following reasons to travel. Then they share with the rest of the class.

  • To learn languages
  • To learn about other people’s culture
  • To escape from reality
  • To show off on Instagram

 

Activity 2 (15’): As a group, we brainstorm different webpages and apps that help us travelling. I will provide some that I know in case they don’t. We will also learn quickly how to use them. Skyscanner, Couchsurfing, Civitatis, Workaway.

 

Activity 3 (20’): (in pairs) Students get a worksheet with a template of a trip planner.

They are given a budget of 1000$.

They will have to arrange their own trip, using the real tools they have seen before. They will have to pick a place, look for accommodation, transport, restaurants. Since this class takes place at the FLRC, they all have the resources to make the reservations and to know exactly the prizes of the things they will need.

 

Activity 4 (10’): Students will present the trip they have organized to the rest of the class. They will have the screen to do it, and also pictures of the places they want to see.

 

What technology, media or props did you use? (internet resources, playmobiles, handouts, etc.)

Access to Internet

 

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

I think students found this class very original. They really enjoyed having to create their own real trip and some of them took it very seriously since many were seniors and were planning trips after graduating.

 

How could this class be improved/ modified?

Something that I could have done better here is the time management. The trip planning process takes a while and some students would have liked to arrange more elaborated trips.
