I am very fortunate that I am married to a guy who is also a Spanish teacher—and who hates to be bored in class as much as I do. Juan Carlos often Skypes into my classroom to talk to students about various topics that mysteriously have something to do with what we learn in class. Well, as you can imagine, Señor Español is a big hit whenever he calls. So you can imagine the reaction when he came to class this week:
We were practicing understanding and using commands in Spanish, so Juan Carlos told students to go certain places to find instructions on how to make gazpacho. Then they had to tell him what to do.
In the end the gazpacho was made and consumed…with varying degrees of pleasure!
So if you want to be a rock star, don’t worry about agents and playing an instrument or singing or whatever. Just know your way around a blender and be Señor Español.
