Books, Movies, TV Shows, Podcasts: July 2, 2022

Updated: Mar 7, 2023

Optional: students can prepare and bring their own questions related to Topic of the Day. This helps move the conversation along and also gives students practice forming sentences and using new vocabulary. Be prepared to to not only ask your questions, but also answer them!

Topic of the Day - Week 3 - Talking About Books, Movies, TV Shows, and/or Podcasts

Today we'll be talking about different types of entertainment. Think about a book you've read recently or a move that you've watched. Can you describe the plot/action in Spanish? Can you answer questions about what happens in the book/movie/show/podcast?

Some examples of questions to get us started: ​

¿Estás leyendo algún libro en este momento?

¿Qué pasa en el libro?

¿Estás mirando alguna serie?

¿Qué pasa en la serie?

¿Estás escuchando algún podcast ahora?

¿De qué se trata?

¿Tienes una película favorita?

¿Cuál es? ¿Qué pasa en la película?

¿Quiénes son los personajes principales?

¿Qué genero de libro/película/serie te gusta?

¿Por qué te gusta?

Cuéntame sobre los personajes. ¿Cómo son?

¿Hay algún personaje que no te cae bien?

¿Cuál fue la última película que viste?

¿Prefieres libros de ficción o basados en hechos reales?

Feeling nervous about Conversation Class? Think about how you would answer the questions above. Look up some words before class. You don't have to use all the tenses. If you are studying the present tense conjugation at the moment, stay in the present. That is perfectly fine, and it's great practice!

Prepare a few questions to ask your partner: when you ask the questions during conversation instead of always answering the questions, it can help you feel in control. It also gives you a break from speaking.

Need more of a challenge? Prepare questions that get you out of your comfort zone, and be prepared to answer them as well. Use these questions with the teacher for level-appropriate conversation.

Remember: We are all here to practice our Spanish and feel more confident in a new language. Mistakes are expected, and it's how we grow!

Nos vemos en clase. :)
