Authentic Audio: Me gusta/No me gusta

Here are some links to Audio Lingua recordings of native Spanish speakers talking about their likes and dislikes:

I had students set up a graphic organizer on their paper:

Super low prep – no copies required!

I played them in the order listed above, as they get progressively more difficult. María speaks really fast, but my kids could still catch Me gusta fútbol! I played it multiple times and had them also listen for her age and the days of the week she practices.

Differentiation: I downloaded the files from Audio Lingua so I could save them in my dropbox and easily share with my department (and also still have them in case the internet went out). I used VLC media player to play them (a free download), and discovered that I could speed up and slow down the playback speed. So cool! So I played it once or twice at regular speed, slowed it down once, then played it again at the normal speed. Neat!

    Seeing ActivInspire makes me nostalgic for my Promethean Board…sigh.

    I’ve been a SMARTboard girl for four years – this is my first year on Promethean and it’s taking some getting used to! If I ever figure out all quirks I think I’m going to like it even better than the SMART board 🙂

    Do you know of any way to share an audio recording on Google Classroom?

    • Andrea says:

      I am not familiar with google classroom. I do post audio files on Schoology by uploading the file. If you can’t upload files of that size on google classroom, perhaps you could save it in drive and share the link.
