Chick-fil-ar: Spanish verb inventing for beginners (metalinguistic awareness activity)

Yo chick-fil-o,

tú chick-fil-as,

él/ella/usted chick-fil-a

I just came across this hilarious meme and decided to make my own version with an added vaca hispanoparlante. At first it just made me laugh, but then realized it could be a starter for a verb-inventing game for beginners.

The objective, in addition to mastering present verb conjugations, is to develop metalinguistic awareness about how verbs conjugations work and the processes by which new verbs are created/adopted into a language.

Even though “chick-fil-ar” is a silly example, we know that new verbs are created in this same way! Googlear, tuitear, etc.  (To follow this pattern, it should be chicfilear, right?)

Let me know in the comments if your students come up with any good, new verbs!

Video: Spanish stem-changing verbs: Practice with memes!

Stem changing verbs memes THUMBNAILLast week, a student emailed me that she was watching our “Direct Object Pronouns: Practice with Memes” video with her 11-year-old son, and he wanted to know what my very favorite meme in Spanish was! Our email exchange got me excited to make another video with more memes!

Here’s the latest video in the “Practice with Memes” series! It is meant to be a fun way to help students practice with stem-changing verbs, expand vocabulary, and especially to invite them to explore the Spanish-speaking world through the internet!

Many students are surprised to see that there are memes and YouTube videos in Spanish just like the ones they like in English. I hope that the memes video series can be just one way to encourage these sorts of connections between students’ interests and Spanish language learning!

And here’s a link to see all the memes and posts on this site categorized to stem-changing verbs! Stem-changing verbs posts

Enjoy the video! Any feedback is welcome!
