This assignment focuses on the culture, geography, resources, and environment of Spanish-speaking countries, rather than the Spanish language. Students research the 1992 Barcelona Olympics and write about the event. Then, they research other Spanish-speaking countries and choose one to host the next Olympics up for bid. They have to follow specific criteria, write a paper, and report their finding to the class. The popularity of the Olympics and the appeal of choosing a host country makes this assignment enjoyable for the students!
