School Supplies in Spanish Pre-Listening Activities
Before I watch the video with my students, we predict what the conversation will be about. To do this, you can pause the video at the beginning and ask them what they can see and what they think the people will talk about.
For example, ¿Qué tiene la chica? (una mochila) and ¿Para qué se usa una mochila?
