Questions About Remote Learning?

Activity Overview

During language acquisition, students must first master the basics of personal conversation, learning words and phrases like hello, goodbye, and how are you?, as well as mastering the appropriate responses. One activity to reinforce these basics, is creating a storyboard of an interpersonal dialogue to practice new language acquisition. Teachers can start by creating a storyboard or template, and ask students complete it by placing the appropriate dialogue in the text bubbles. Alternatively, students can create their own from scratch. Either way, getting students to create and use these new phrases will enhance their practical knowledge and fluency.

Suggested Focus Areas

  • Describe yourself, and tell about some of your likes and dislikes.
  • Find out what other people are like, and what they like to do.
  • Compare yourself to other people's likes and dislikes.

In the example below, the student has created a storyboard that shows their knowledge of standard greetings. An important part of the teacher's lesson for the conversational Spanish unit is discussion of the etiquette and politeness in Spanish culture. It is always important for there to be a response of 'thank you' or 'you as well' when answering a basic greeting.

Storyboard Text

  • Bien, gracias.

  • ¡Buenos días clase!
