These Spanish interpersonal speaking circumlocution task cards are a great addition to a unit on business and the economy! The cards have vocabulary terms related to a wide variety of topics related to the theme of the economy, business, finance, and money. The words are purposely more obscure terms, so that students are unlikely to know them. Students must use the strategy of circumlocution to get their partner to guess the term on the card. This is a great way to help your students realize they can speak in Spanish, even with a limited vocabulary!
Task cards can be used in so many ways in the classroom! Give these cards to fast finishers to keep them on task and working in the language. Set up circumlocution speaking stations or play a fun game of Taboo. The possibilities are almost endless!
