Commercials in Spanish

800px-M&Ms_(8065581663)

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.

4.  I have found some more on Pinterest.  Here are some boards: Beth Bly, Cassey Buchmann, and Erin Berry-Lasceski.

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!)

    1. Thanks! The Google Doc is awesome! I love how teachers are always so willing to share everything- it is quite amazing. My mom taught for 32 years as a reading teacher. I don’t know how she did it without being able to access all these incredible ideas all of the time.

    1. Awesome! It would be an interesting conversation. I know that I have read a lot of articles how in Mexico our eating habits in the US is having negative effects on their diets. Thanks!
