This is a cultural reading designed to incorporate grammar topics and culture while also receiving comprehensible input. There is a basic reading as well as and extended reading that both have comprehension questions.
Designed for a level 2+ especially if you are introducing the imperfect tense. Students can see the grammar topic in context.
This culture reading contains comprehension questions in order to keep students accountable. KEY INCLUDED!
Students will take a peek into the secret language of the Spanish fan that was popularized by socialites in the 19th century.
I have also given a link to a video that demonstrates many of the ways young ladies would communicate with young men at public events.
This reading would be a great sub plan or a great addition to a unit on Spain.
