De compras

Hardly my favourite topic to teach, but this lesson re: opinions on different ways of buying things worked. I’ll explain how I used the attached PowerPoint bit by bit.

  1. The PowerPoint begins with a starter using the Mi Gente song. I just wanted to make sure they know the word “gente” and hoped Beyoncé would be better at getting them to remember this than me.
  2. The photo of El Corte Inglés is part of my routine to get them to describe pictures.
  3. They know PUEDO, so I’m introducing SUELO. I’m making sure they know the main high frequency verbs like QUIERO, PUEDO, DEBO, DOY, etc. They saw SUELO last lesson, so is a recap.
  4. Question slide – ¿Dónde sueles comprar? + ¿Por qué? We worked through this bit by bit to make sure they understood everything.
  5. I then read out three sentences in English which they had to translate into Spanish using the previous slide e.g. I usually shop on the internet because there are more discounts.
  6. We then went through all the reasons why you might shop in a department store or online + decided which they best described.
  7. Worksheet. Match the Spanish to the English + then translation of the phrases.
  8. Reading worksheet. There are three versions of this as my bottom set group is really mixed in terms of ability.
  9. Written task. Styled along the lines of the AQA Foundation Paper 90 word task which my group is getting used to.
  10. Past paper reading exam question. I used the slide to explain the issue of whether online shopping is harming the high street + then they did the reading task.

The homework task is a translation based on language from this and previous lessons. I’ve been teaching them “Diría que” as an alternative to “Creo que ../ Pienso que …”.
