Spanish-speaking Country Activities ("La Gozadera")
These activities are meant to help students learn the names and locations of Spanish-speaking countries.

These activities go along with the song "La Gozadera" by Gente de Zona and featuring Marc Anthony. This song is readily available on YouTube and iTunes and a link to the song is referenced.

First students will complete a pre-viewing activity which will ask them to recall the names of Spanish-speaking countries with some supports. Following that, students will read a short biography, in Spanish, of the group Gente de Zona. After viewing the video, they will begin completing the cloze activity which focuses on their interpretive listening skills and ability to hear the names of Spanish-speaking countries within the song. Finally, students will take a closer look at the lyrics of the song and complete a map activity and respond to some culture questions that ask them to think about what it means to be Latino or Latin American.
