I know that El Pequeño Nicolás is a French book and more recently a film, but I haven’t come up with a Spanish-speaking equivalent yet. So, I have used the trailers from the film which has just been released in Spain as a starting point to compare classrooms today with those from the past (hay v. había). This activity comes after the relevant vocabulary has been presented. What I like most is the trailer in which Nicolás presents his friends and even though the language is very complicated learners can still work out what is going on. If anyone can come up with a film or TV series which shows a classroom in the past in a Spanish-speaking country/community please let me know. It is probably worth pointing out the obvious – this would work well in French! Shame I’m not teaching it this year.
