Description

Spud is keen to have a cuddly new pet but Farley isn't happy to be considered for the role. He doesn't think of himself as a dog. With the help of Soda's translating cap, the friends consider the various merits of a bird, a tortoise, a hamster, a dog and a cat. Farley's unconventional approach to the pet search convince Spud that maybe she needs to think about the situation more. The humorous animation introduces some Spanish vocabulary to beginners.

Classroom Ideas

This clip could be used to practise the vocabulary for pets and to introduce adjective agreement. Pupils could be given flashcards with the animals on which they should then match to the appropriate adjective. The masculine and feminine form of each adjective should be given. Pupils could then be encouraged to create sentences eg el gato es aterrador.
