Sharpen your students' listening skills by having them listen to native speakers! Access to authentic resources creates authentic language learning.
These activities go with the video library from the University of Texas at Austin and will teach your students how to train their ears to native speakers while practicing their own reading, writing, and speaking skills with medical vocabulary and past tense.
There are five videos of patients and one video of the doctor. To use in class, first print out pgs 3-4 for your students. Then open the web link to the videos. THAT’S IT! No prep necessary.
Activities are challenging and are meant to reinforce learned content of medical/health vocabulary and various irregular and past tense constructions.
-Link to 6 short videos of native speakers describing symptoms
-Comprehension questions in Spanish
-Directions completely in Spanish
-Medical vocabulary practice
-Advice and phrases of obligation practice
-Writing exercises related to videos
-Speaking exercise where students pretend to be doctor and patient
If students complete each activity, this lesson will last a full block period or two 45-minute periods.
These videos also make great listening sections on quizzes and tests.
