Pictures, titles.
This activity may be a review activity of the chapter that
teaches students how to give information about themselves
in the target language, we are assuming that students are
already familiarized with some phrases, nouns and verbs.
The whole activity is titled Quines somos? (Who are we)
The script was created by me, I created the dialogue, the
passage about Rebeca and made both recordings by myself.
The reason why I chose to use these kinds of activities is
because I think that is very important for students to listen
authentic material about real life situations and how people
usually talk about themselves, and after listening one or two
times they can have the main idea of the
conversation/passage and then do some activities more
related to identification of information. I also decided to
combine listening with reading and writing.
The last activity is a song, I chose it because I think its fun
for students and it helps them to improve their listening and
they get to catch some words out of the songs. Also, this
song is from one of the most famous singers in Spanish, Marc
Anthony and the song is pretty well known worldwide. I think
learning from music is very useful and it works.
