Spanish Commands and Culture through Music: Calle 13 "Preparame la Cena"
This is an engaging bundle of activities that utilizes multimedia and cultural discussion to bring your students into the language during any part of the school year; especially when starting a lesson on informal commands
This can serve as an introduction to the language during the first few days of command lessons, or as a cultural activity at any point during the year.
The bundle includes:
*Lyrics in Spanish
*Comprehension/cultural and grammatical questions
*Topics for research and cultural discussion
Students first watch the video (it can be found on youtube and is very visually creative and engaging) and listen to the words of the song. During the second play of the video, students should read along in Spanish/English. Students can then take a few minutes to complete the comprehension questions, and research any of the topics provided. These topics should provide for a varied cultural discussion that promotes acceptance and open-mindedness as well as language learning.
