No Language Lab? No Problem!

language lab

Does your school have a language lab? My school has been through many iterations. We had one, then we had one without any supported software, and then they dismantled it……. 🤔🤔🤔

Bur now we use a software called Extempore. It’s a subscription service that our district pays for. It continues to improve each year, and I think it’s great! I am not paid to say this, and I have no affiliate benefits either. I’m just putting this app out there in case it could help other Spanish and World Language teachers and students!

Spanish Listening and Speaking Activities

Are you doing Integrated Spanish Listening and Speaking Activities in your Spanish classes this year? Embarrassing fact: I was NOT doing a lot of that with my students in the recent past. But now that my school offers the Seal of Biliteracy, my students need practice with the ILS, or Integrated Speaking and Listening activity. So as all teachers do, I learned and adapted. Hopefully I can help you learn to create these activities too!

Speaking Activities in Spanish Class: Guided Conversations

We all want our students to improve in their ability to speak Spanish and participate in conversations. However, I was noticing that my students really struggled with conversing. Assuming that you’ve built a good class culture and students feel willing to take risks with their classmates, what they need next is some scaffolding to increase their chances for success! I use Guided Conversations!
