Just a super quick note to share a slideshow to chat about the 2022 Olympic Games. I don’t care about sports ever…except for the Olympics. I just can’t get enough!
Here’s the slideshow in Spanish!
Here’s the slideshow in French (Merci, Erin Foley!)
Here’s the slideshow in German (Danke Andrew Maurer!)
Here’s a copy of the slideshow if you’d like to translate it to another language. I’d love it if you’d share a link with me for other teachers to use!
We had a great time talking about the sports they were unfamiliar with. I gave simple explanations of Skeleton, Luge, Ski Jumping and Curling, complete with LOTS of acting out and illustrations on the board…followed up by a YouTube video for each. Even though the language on the slideshow is simple, I used it in all my levels, adjusting my language to be comprehensible to my students.
In my upper level classes, we tied it all together using the conditional tense: Which sport would you play? Would you be afraid to try Luge? Would you be more afraid ski jumping or doing skeleton?
Happy Monday, friends! I hope it’s going to be a great week for all of us!
Hola Señora Chase,
Muchísimas gracias por compartir esta presentación. Qué buena idea, seguro que a mis estudiantes les va a encantar 😉
I wanted to share something with you. I hope it is OK …The use of Qué and Cuál is really complicated in Spanish.
I would suggest:
– ¿ Qué evento te interesa más? or ¿Cuál de estos eventos te interesan más? – ¿Qué países han ganado una medalla olímpica?
I love your materials and it is wonderful to receive your fresh ideas. Please, if any day you have any questions about the Spanish crazy grammar. I am happy to help. I have been in the USA for 15 years now, and I still have so many questions about English grammar.
Gracias y feliz semana! Cristina
Thank you so much!!! I swear, it’s Que/Cuál that trips me up more than any other! I appreciate you comment and it’s fixed now 🙂
Bonjour, tout le monde ! Here is the link to the French version of the presentation. I also added a slide with an infographic of the countries with the most medals, with image credits included for all.
Hi, Here is a link to what I’ve done for French. It should “force copy”. Please let me know if it doesn’t work. Laurie
Hi Laurie! It says I need permission to access this. Could you share it with me senorachase at gmail dot com?
