Cultural Corner Preview

Instructions And Contents

This is a section about culture, accents and “doing”. Our goal is that your students meet someone from each of the 21 Spanish speaking countries, and that they learn and somehow participate in a certain tradition or cultural activity.

All the videos include a PDF file with many building background activities that will prepare your students for the video. These activities focus on the key vocabulary and the listening comprehension.

You’ll have the option to show the videos with or without subtitles, and you can preview the videos in low resolution here, so you know whether they might be appropriate for the level of your classes.

Once you purchase a package from our cultural corner, you’ll be able to download the .zip file -that includes all the activities- from Your Account page. You’ll have then everything you need for a different class that will engage your students, and that they’ll remember for a long time, because as we all know, we learn from what we do.
