Duolingo Podcasts

Have yolistened to any of the Duolingo Podcasts? They are soooooo good! They are like an easier version of Radio Ambulante and tell interesting and uplifting stories from all over the Spanish speaking world.

I have listened to a ton of them (there are 60 total) because they are perfect for a screen-break-walk. Here are some of my favorites. And here is a detailed listening/question guide that I made for Episodio  52: Otro camino hacia la victoria

I hope to develop more listening/question guides like that, but in the meantime, I made this template (adapted a bit from Bethanie Drew's template) to use for my Spanish 4 and Cultura y Civilización classes this fall. I also made the video below to explain some things to my students. I have included some gramática in there... these upper level students really like grammar!

Ferdinando el toro... online version

I am so thankful for having the Fluency Matters e-courses! In Spanish 2, we are just finishing El Ekeko this week. My students have been getting lots of CI with the text of the book, the audio of the book, and the quizzes. Usually, I read to my students in a Google Meet and then they do the quizzes on that same day. The next day, they do some sort of activity related to what they read. 

I am starting the Fluency Matters e-course Bianca Nieves y los siete toritos in Spanish 2 next week. I always love to start with the original Disney short of Ferdinand the bull:
So I have adapted my resources for online learning and I am sharing in case anyone else can use them:

Oldie but goodie for ONLINE Canción/Cuento de la Semana: Puebla

I created a unit with that song as the base and I am so looking forward to using it next year. There are lots of excellent authentic resources related to a legend and food in there, but for now, I am sharing because there are parts of the unit that could be used for online learning.

Here are the resources that could be used online:
