A Story for Intermediates: "Una Ruptura Mala"

Usted - Juan Magan y Mala Rodríguez

Mala Rodríguez has always been a favorite of mine, but I can't really use her music, and certainly not her videos, in class. So, I was excited to see this new song, "Usted," by her and Juan Magan, and to realize that I can use this song!

I wanted to use it with Spanish 1 for Story Listening, but I just couldn't simplify it, especially because the video doesn't really show much of a story. So instead, I used the lyrics from the song to make a dialogue-heavy story that could be used with Intermediate students. The story is called "Una Ruptura Mala." There are so many shifts between and usted, so I tried to incorporate those into the story too. 

I also created some preguntas personales to start with and a parallel story script that I will use with my students to co-create a similar story. It is almost like a Mad Libs activity and it should be a fun way to start with some of the structures of the song.

After the two stories and a few other accompanying activities, students should be able to understand the song. I have a feeling this will be a hit! 

I might also have them write up something about what happened before and/or after the story.

I am sharing all of this for FREE, but if you think this (or anything else that you got on my site for free) is useful and has saved you some time, you can buy these resources here or feel free to give back here in Radiohead style (click here to see what I mean by Radiohead style)
