Activity Information:

Pepe & Paula readings are a fun way to get comprehensible input for every Spanish topic, when used as a complete set, they tell the story of a budding romance between Pepe and Paula. In Spanish 1 they are freshmen getting to know the school and each other and Pepe finds out that Paula has a boyfriend, Mateo. In Spanish 2 she has increasing conflict with Mateo, but Pepe finds a new love interest, Fabiana. In Spanish 3, Paula is single while Pepe navigates Fabiana's increasing input in his life, and by Spanish 4 they decide to date each other as they navigate the senior year of high school.

Each reading includes a 10-line dialogue between Pepe and Paula and comprehension questions. I always write comprehension questions in English so that students have to demonstrate real comprehension rather than copying key words from the passage, but it is all editable so you can tweak and you can add unit-specific vocabulary. (Sometimes Paula teasingly calls Pepe estúpido - if you want to switch to a different phrase, you can.)

Since each one is written as a dialogue, you can also have students act them out! Choose one student to be Pepe, one to be Paula, and have the rest of the students watch it - now you've got a speaking and listening activity! Or pair them in dyads and compete for the best dramatic interpretation.

Please note - these readings are also the reading passages in my Spanish test series. Because they are part of those tests, I do not include answer keys - I never want your students to be able to download answers to their exams - protecting your academic integrity is top priority. But the readings and questions are very straightforward.

These are also available in the Pepe & Paula Reading Bundle.
