Culture and Countries of the Spanish-Speaking World
Having moved beyond the building blocks of learning a foreign language, intermediate Spanish lesson plans should add lessons about Hispanic and Latino culture to the curriculum. Everything about a country --- geography, history, arts, economy, etc. --- influences the people and, to some extent, the language. Spain alone has a complex history of wars, occupation by foreign powers, supremacy, poverty, literature and diverse dialects. With these project ideas and plans, intermediate Spanish students can branch out and discover the culture of the Spanish-speaking world for themselves. Whether it's designing a mural in the style of Diego Rivera or watching a Spanish-language movie, students will engage in the culture whose language they are learning.
With this list of intermediate Spanish lesson plans, you'll be able to cover all topics from vocabularly to culture! Keep students engaged, interested and learning as they begin the next phase of learning a second language. If you have any great lessons or ideas to share, please feel free by commenting below.
