In last week’s #langchat on Twitter, we were discussing incorporating culture. On a side conversation, we ended up discussing good websites for Spanish commercials. I think it is important to remember that commercials are an easy way to show culture in class, and they are an authentic resource. Here are some ideas:
1. Here is William Levy on a M&M commercial.
2. This channel has food commercials in Spanish. (Jack-in-the-box makes me nostalgic for Southern California even though I never ate there when I lived there! Ha!)
3. Kara Jacobs recommended this website for lots of commercials.
To find more, Megan suggested to just search anuncio + the company name in Spanish in YouTube. Finally, some teachers suggest starting class with videos. I always start with a warm-up, and I really like my beginning class routine. I decided to end with a commercial! I can use these websites to find one quickly.
Finally- this week we are taking the National Spanish Exam. Good luck to everyone who is taking it this week! (It’s the last week, so don’t forget!)
