Reciclar (repeat practice with different structures)

Reciclar (repeat practice with different structures)

I have to admit I got this idea from a Twitter post I saw months ago, I went through a good few weeks of using these as starters for year 11 every week. Each one had either a noun or a verb to be practised, if you want me to share the rest then let me know.

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!
