I am starting this unit: "Las Bellezas y Las Dificultades de Colombia" next week in my Cultura y Civilización class (Spanish 4/5/6/7). I originally started the unit with a story based on the song/music video "Pescaíto", then added La Niña... but now I have added a fantastic introduction piece to Las Bellezas de Colombia.
After seeing this song/music video promoting tourism in Colombia, "Sabrosura" (thanks to David Talone on the Facebook IFLT/NTPRS/CI Teaching Facebook group, Arianne Dowd, and Sharon Birch too),
I went down a rabbit hole on the website for the tourism advertising campaign called: Colombia: Tierra de La Sabrosura. There are a TON of fantastic resources on that site and I compiled a whole bunch of them in the presentation below. Most of the language is taken right from the website, but some of it I wrote. I will use this to introduce my students to La Belleza de la Cultura Colombiana. Click here if you want to make a copy and/or use it. And here is a basic cloze activity for the song.
I am sharing all of this for FREE, but if you think this (or anything else that you got here for free) is useful and has saved you some time, feel free to give back here in Radiohead style (click here to see what I mean by Radiohead style).
