These speaking prompts are designed to move students from asking/answering basic questions in Spanish to responding to increasingly complicated prompts around the theme Spanish-speaking Countries & Capitals.
There are 4 categories of prompts that ask students to move between different levels of communication including the presentation of facts, opinions, feelings, and towards complete openness in social situations.
Category A – Yes or No Questions, Either/Or Questions
Category B – Additional Information Questions
Category C – Expressing Opinions and Feelings
Category D – Situational Speaking Prompts & Extended Response
You may approach these prompts by moving students through them from Categories A-D in a sequential manner, or you may use them as an opportunity for easy differentiation between the various proficiency levels of Novice to Intermediate learners that may be present in your classroom.
Although these prompts have been designed as speaking prompts, they can also be used as writing prompts for individual practice, homework, or assessment.

-Pair students for one on one practice.
