This resource includes:
--- a reading passage of two pages with focus on reading comprehension and vocabulary. The texts covers the development of the Spanish language as well as its role in modern Spain. Spanish minority language are also discussed (the Catalan language, the Basque language of Euskara, and Galician);
--- a page of vocabulary work and a page of comprehension and opinion questions;
--- a fun activity that can be used at any time, before or after reading. Students choose the 17 words from a list of 28 words used in English that were “borrowed” from Spanish. A couple of websites about word origins are included to help students if needed.
An answer key is provided for all three student work pages.
