Practice irregular preterite forms while visiting Cádiz at Easter

Posted by Alvaro

Semana Santa en Cádiz” is a 5-minute video, with optional subtitles in Spanish, that focuses on practicing the irregular preterite verbs. The irregular verbs in the preterite are especially important because they are some of the most used in everyday conversations: decir, estar, hacer, poder, querer, ser/ir and tener.

In the video, two young Spaniards talk about what they did in “Semana Santa.” One of them went to Cádiz, in the South of Spain, and describes all the touristic attractions she visited, using of course the preterite, and especially irregular verbs. The package also includes three audio activities and a 10-page PDF document with exercises to do before, during and after the video, as well as the answer key and the transcripts of the listening activities and the video.

Thanks to this icebreaker your students will:

  • Learn or review basic vocabulary about tourism: aeropuerto, castillo, hotel, iglesia, montaña, playa, plaza, pueblo, recepcionistaruinas...
  • Practice the irregular verbs in the preterite through different activities (writing, reading, listening and speaking.)
  • Learn important facts about touristic places such as the Riviera Maya (Mexico), Cádiz and Alcalá de Henares (Spain.)
