This file contains 20 short listening passages. I use this file in the month of May with my Spanish 1 students. I begin class each day with a listening activity. Each passage has an accompanying listening quiz. Most of the listening quizzes are 5 questions. The quizzes are multiple choice, ordering according to what is heard, short answer or fill in. They are great for reviewing the major topics in a level 1 course. Sometimes I choose a student to read the passage and that counts as their quiz for the class.
This can also be used in a Spanish 2 class at the beginning of the school year. It would be especially practical for Spanish 2 students to review the previous year's material and if the students read, they could practice pronunciation.
I always read the passage twice, sometimes I collect the quizzes, sometimes I have the students trade in class, sometimes I have the students get into small groups to review the answers and tell back to me in Spanish the passage they heard. When the students work in small groups to tell the passage back in Spanish, it really builds confidence and collaboration because they are working together to solve a problem. After each group tells the passage back to you in Spanish the student groups could tell their versions to the rest of the class. It can be as long or as short an activity as you want.
Just using each passage as a quick warm-up will take about 5 minutes.
And to save paper, there are 3 copies of each quiz per page.
