These conversation prompt cards are perfect for practicing basic conversation skills with beginning Spanish students. Students may feel less self-conscious while practicing since they are playing the part of famous people, not themselves.
The front of each card includes a famous person (not necessarily Hispanic) that the students will most likely already be familiar with from prior History classes, in addition to where that famous person is from. The back of the card has a 5 step conversation prompt that covers: 1. Greeting 2. ¿Cómo estás? 3. ¿Cómo te llamas? 4. ¿De dónde eres? 5. Hasta luego (or other goodbye phrase). Print double sided to have the famous people on front and prompts on back.
Do this activity speed-dating style where students rotate partners and cards. Or pass the cards around and have students practice writing down answers.
