My Spanish 1 students are working on descriptions with SER right now, and I’m always trying to find ways to switch up the usual “¿Cómo eres?” activities for practicing personal descriptions.
In this activity, Peter Griffin and Voldemort are “mentirosos” who have written very inaccurate dating profiles.
Students first re-write each profile to make it more accurate, and then write a new profile for a character of their choice. Correcting the profiles first serves as a model for writing the last profile on their own.
Finally, students swap to share their (often comical) character profiles and peer edit.
Peter Griffin and Voldemort are very recognizable for my college-age students, but the characters could be changed to best suit your students’ interests.
Here is a link to the printable PDF of the handout:
If you use this activity with your students, I’d love to hear how it went in the comments!
