Before I watch videos with my students, we predict what they will hear in the video. To do this, you can tell students the general topic is dressing for the weather and ask questions such as ¿Qué te pones en un día soleado? ¿Cuándo usas un paraguas? ¿Te gusta la nieve? ¿Qué te pones cuando hace frío?
Learn Spanish Weather Vocabulary
With my students, I usually watch videos all the way through once before doing activities. If you are assigning the video for remote learning, encourage students to watch once before trying answer the questions. Our easy Spanish conversations videos are short and comprehensible. Students will understand a lot the first time. In addition, watching the whole video provides important context that helps them understand when they watch a second time.
