This writing activity has students practice answering important questions in
Spanish about describing people. It also requires students to use the nationality
vocabulary of the Capítulo 1 in McGraw Hill's Asi se dice. Though it does coincide with Capítulo 1, the questions and vocabulary involved are acceptable for any beginning Spanish student.
1. I usually print these slides 2 per page and cut the pages in half. I give each
student one person. (If the class is larger than 12, I just duplicate the pictures)
2. I require students to answer each question in a complete sentence, making
up a name for the person pictured and using él or ella.
