The word “time” in Spanish can be translated to Spanish in several different ways! This is a source of confusion for many of my students, so I made this video to explain which words to use depending on the intended meaning of “time” in different contexts.
Enjoy the video!
¿Dónde están las suricatas?
¿Qué están haciendo?
Una suricata está sobre la cabeza del fotógrafo.
Una suricata está encima de la cámara.
Una suricata está detrás de la cámara.
Las suricatas están jugando con el fotógrafo.
Las suricatas están examinando la cámara.
This song activity is great for a Día de muertos unit! Also, for my more advanced students in a Spanish Conversation and Composition course, I used this activity together with the story “El otro círculo” by Luis R. Santos (as featured in our textbook, Revista). We compared our analyses of both the story and the song to discuss different cultural perspectives about death presented through literature, art, music, etc.
Enjoy the video below!
As always, I would love to hear about it in the comments if you use this activity in your classroom!
