This is a great activity for practicing basic Spanish vocabulary such as age, nationality, name, likes, and dislikes, but in a creative and realistic way. This activity is based off the speed-dating and covers all of the Communication standards for World Language. In my classroom, this activity takes the entire class period (and might even go into the next day’s lesson). To make it more realistic, I set up my classroom like a restaurant complete with “tables”, flowers, candles, and music. Although this activity might take students outside of their comfort zones, by the end they get really into it and don't even realize they are working!
