Vamos de compras: Come with your students to “La calle Preciados”, the main shopping area in Madrid.

Posted by Alvaro

“Vamos de compras” contains a video and activities for Pre-intermediate students (A2, Spanish II) that are familiar with the basic shopping vocabulary, and who are ready to learn the “pretérito” of the regular verbs. This icebreaker contains:

  • A 12-page PDF document with activities to get your students ready to understand the video. These activities are about the “pretérito”, shopping vocabulary, shopping conversations and vocabulary about fashion businesses.
  • 6 audio activities and their transcripts and answer keys.
  • A high resolution video that you can preview in our Icebreaker section.

This is a great resource to explain the “pretérito” and to extend your student’s shopping vocabulary, while they enjoy a visit to one of Madrid’s more crowded and exciting streets.

After purchasing the “Vamos de Compras” icebreaker, you’ll receive a file containing the video in high definition. That’s the video you can use in your classes, along with the listening and writing activities. You can buy this video from our Icebreaker section, and its price is $8.00.
