Are you looking for ways to build proficiency with your Spanish students? I have a great suggestion! Begin Integrated Listening and Speaking activities as soon as possible with your students!

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.

I use Guided Conversations!
