Classroom Ideas

This clip could be used to introduce the idea of fiestas in Spain. Pupils could be shown pictures (or clips) from various different fiestas ('las fallas', 'la tomatina', 'los San Fermines') which they need to match up with English descriptions of what happens during the fiesta. Pupils could then learn key words associated with the fiestas before creating a poster for the event this year.
