Las vacaciones: Simulated Conversation Speaking Test (Script & Student Outline)

Las vacaciones: Simulated Conversation Speaking Test (Script & Student Outline)
Product Description
This is a simulated conversation speaking test (or practice activity). Students must speak with the employee of the hotel where they are staying during their trip to Puerto Rico. (The part of the employee can be read or pre-recorded by you, or if you can manage it, a native speaker.) Students listen to what the employee says and have a set time (which you can determine) to respond appropriately.

If you buy, you would receive both the script (what the hotel employee says), and the outline for the students (what they would see to guide them during the test). You could administer the test in a variety of ways, but students could easily respond using their iPhones or iPods (via Voice Memos) while you read or play the recording of the employee part of the script.

I do this with my Spanish 2 students and it is appropriate for their ability levels. This is modeled after a task that students must perform on the AP Spanish Language exam! It provides great practice with the formal register as well!

We use Descubre in our school and so the test is based off the vocabulary for Lesson 5 (Los viajes y las vacaciones), but as long as you are working with that theme, any specific vocabulary could be easily modified to fit your particular needs!
