Here we see students interacting in Spanish with purpose. They are up and moving around the classroom, mingling and using their Spanish in real-world ways to get to know each other.
The activity pictured here comes from the ¡Hablemos! (“Let’s talk!”) activity at the end of chapter 2, which requires students to describe themselves in every way they can (basic descriptions, but also personality, likes and dislikes).
Students wrote a profile (either of themselves or another classmate that they interviewed) on brightly colored paper. The papers were then hung around the classroom for students to read and learn more about their peers.
