This is a collection of film comprehension questions that accompany 17 free, online documentary shorts (many from VICE), which focus on subjects related to Spanish language and culture.
The majority of the questions are simple follow-along comprehension style, with only a few that are higher order and/or opinion based.
The films range in length from 10 to 30 minutes and have a broad range of subject matter.
Please note: Many of the ideas discussed in these films are for mature audiences (drugs, violence, extreme poverty, etc.) and should only be used for upper grade High School students.
No answer keys included.
