This is a conversation dialogue \for students using and practicing the preterite. Students pair up, read a dialogue suggestion in English, and practice the conversation in Spanish. The theme is summer break, and the students are encouraged to come up with ridiculous activities, and to respond with 'no me digas', which is the focused idiomatic expression. There is a second dialogue that the students can attempt for more of a challenge, which has even more comedic and theatrical elements than the first!
The worksheet contains space for writing notes for the dialogue.
The students have a good time with all the repetition of 'no me digas' and typically use the expression for the rest of the year.
See preview for a very small sample.
Best used for Spanish 2,3,and 4. I use it with Realidades 2 3b
and Realidades 3 1a
