Recommended for: Grades 7-10
In this My Town unit, the learners will learn to develop their intercultural understanding by being introduced to the sights of some typical Spanish-speaking cities. They will also learn to describe places in a town, count to 100 and give their address in Spanish. To support non-specialists, there are sound files of all key vocabulary, plus extra teacher guidance at the end of the lesson plans where necessary.
The series of lessons is powered by Twinkl, an international affiliation of Hub English in providing quality education.
