Haz una lista de preguntas comunes sobre restaurantes.
< < < para los profes > > >
Step 1: Daily Objective
Today students will be able to practice asking and answering questions about food and restaurants.
Question of the day
What questions can they come up with?
(Note: Asking original questions is more of an intermediate skill. They may have memorized phrases that help them ask more novice questions like “¿Cuál es tu restaurante favorito?”so it’s okay if they have errors right now as they try to create with the language. They will see lots of examples of questions today so they can get more input of verbs and word order and you can work on those issues ovew time.)
Give them the first 2 sheets from the “Matching” download. With a partner, they will cut apart the strips and match the questions with their possible answers. Each question may have more than one answer.
Next show the images with the answers. Let them check their answers and ask any questions. See if there are new phrases that they want to add to the notes.
Information Gap Interpersonal Practice
There are 4 different restaurants (A / B / C / D) in the download to assign to different students. The point of this activity is that they need to ask questions to their partner in order to answer their questions because they need that information.
Give each student one of the restaurants. So 1/4 of the class will have version A, another 1/4 will have version B, etc.
Give them time individually to look at their restaurant (on the left) and summarize the information on the right side.
Tell them to partner up. If they have an A, find a B partner. If they have a C, find a D partner.
Students will take turns asking questions to their partners in order to find out the basic information about their partner’s restaurant and write it down on their note sheet. They cannot show each other their papers, but can ask as many questions that they want. They may want to know phrases like “repeat” to stay in the target language. For an extra “fun challenge” to this activity, add one of the following:
Next tell them to find a new partner. A partners with C. / B partners with D. Repeat the questions/answers.
One more time, tell them to find a new partner. A partners with D. / B partners with C. Repeat the questions/answers.
Now they should have their sheet completed. See if they have any questions. The images are above in case you want to reference them.
Remind them of the daily goal. Pick one of the restaurants (A, B, C or D). Click on the image to make it larger.
On a piece of paper, ask them to write their name and 4 questions that they can ask about that restaurant, but DON’T PUT THE ANSWER.
Then tell them to pass the paper to some on the other side of the room. For a little fun, they can wad up the paper and throw it to someone. Then that person has to answer the questions at their proficiency level and write their name. Then you can formatively assess how well they can ask and answer questions.
