Argentina - Culture, Language, Accent (Spanish)

Argentina - Culture, Language, Accent (Spanish)

his is a full 60 minute lesson class about Argentina - targeted towards any level Spanish in middle/high school. This lesson includes a no prep powerpoint, guided notes, and a fun communicative activity where students are the Pope and Messi. Powerpoint/Google Slides + Guided Notes: Gives students basic information about the Argentina (Mothers of May, tango, food, sports) - and then gives students rules about how Argentinas typically speak (voseo, y–> SH, ll–>sh). Students then listen to people with Argentina accents in videos, and focus on the accent and pronunciation. Communicative Activity: Students then take on the role of the Pope and Messi- and read a conversation out loud with their partner. They use their best Argentine accents and fill in the blanks of what their friend said (speaking puzzle/fill in the blank activity). After they answer comprehension questions in English. Creative Activity: As an exit ticket, students create a comic or fun drawings, using the slang they learned in class to represent what they’ve learned in a fun new way! I recommend using the google slides (included in the powerpoint) and the notes are included as well!

Famous Latinos Communicative Activity

Famous Latinos Communicative Activity

Students are given the identity of a famous Latino. Their goal is to talk to other students to figure out what their name is (¿Cómo te llamas?), how old they are (¿Cuántos años tienes?), where they are from (¿De dónde eres?), and what they are famous for (¿Porque eres famoso?). Students then respond to these questions according the the famous latino they are assigned, and copy down the responses of their peers. Can be easily extended where students go home and write down more information about the person they were assigned, create an instagram page for the person they received, etc. Heavy focus on communication on basic spanish questions, and writing in the third person - mixed with culture.
