Videos: Adivina la palabra de hoy

You know when you find one great website which then leads to another website and so on? Well, on the Practica Español site, I found a series of videos from the Fundación de la Lengua Española called Adivina. From the site:

"Adivina" es un diccionario básico del español en formato audiovisual con definiciones aportadas por niños españoles. Creado con el fin de fomentar el aprendizaje del idioma con una metodología en la que prima el entretenimiento.

Okay, I’m just going to say it. The videos are cute… useful as well, but cute. I can see this series of videos being used in the classroom or at home. You could also follow the premise of this series as a classroom exercise. Divide your students into two teams and have one person on each team describe a vocabulary word. Whichever team guesses correctly gets a point and so on.

Where to go:
Fundación de la Lengua Española - Adivina

I really enjoyed finding your blog and looking through all of the fun ideas that you had for teaching Spanish. I am a University student studying to be a Spanish teacher, so you're blog has been very fun to view. Thanks!

When I learned Spanish 14 years ago I learned a ton from children. I felt more comfortable speaking to them for the first two months than I did adults. I wasn't as afraid to mess up. lol
