Spanish Future Tense and Nicaraguan Culture through Music: "Yo No Sé Mañana"
This is an engaging bundle of activities that utilizes multimedia and cultural discussion to bring your students into the language during your FUTURE TENSE unit, or during a study of Nicaragua.
This can serve as an introduction or review to the future tense, or as a cultural activity at any point during the year.
The bundle includes 3 worksheets that are ready to print:
1 *Lyrics in Spanish
2 *Comprehension and grammatical activity on the future tense
3 *10 Cultural questions for research that prompt discussion and
comparison of cultures
Students first watch the video (live videos can be found on youtube.com) and listen to the words of the song. During the second play of the video, students should read along in Spanish. Students can then take a few minutes to complete the comprehension questions that review informal commands. After review of this sheet together students are called to research Nicaragua, where Luis Enrique is from.
These topics should provide for a varied cultural discussion that promotes acceptance and open-mindedness as well as language learning.
