De qué se trata

La primera parte de la clase tiene por objeto introducir vocabulario al respecto del carnaval, mediante un texto que explica sus orígenes históricos. Tras ver dos breves videos con imágenes de los carnavales de Oruro (Bolivia) y Cádiz (España) respectivamente, los alumnos hacen suposiciones sobre cómo se celebran. A continuación se introducen las oraciones impersonales con «se», que se usarán en la última actividad, de carácter oral: divididos en dos grupos, se facilita a cada uno información sobre uno de los carnavales, que habrá de presentar oralmente.
