Coronavirus advice and obligations activity

This activity is designed to help students practice and reinforce their understanding of the obligations and advice in the context of the Coronavirus pandemic. It encompasses three distinct activities that facilitate language acquisition and communication skills related to this crucial topic.

Activity 1: The primary goal of this activity is for students to formulate a set of recommendations using imperative structures like “hay que + infinitive,” “tener que + infinitive,” and “deber + infinitive.” These structures are essential for expressing advice and obligations, especially in the context of health and safety during the pandemic. By incorporating specific vocabulary related to the Coronavirus, students learn how to convey important guidance effectively.

Activity 2: This segment focuses on regular and irregular verbs in the present indicative tense. Students are presented with statements and positive messages pertaining to the pandemic. By completing these sentences, students practice verb conjugation and gain proficiency in expressing actions and ideas in the present tense. This skill is valuable for discussing current situations, including those related to the Coronavirus.

Activity 3: The final activity aims to instill a sense of positivity and empowerment in students. It introduces the imperative mood in Spanish, which is used to give commands or make requests. By creating and sharing positive messages, students learn how to use imperative verbs to inspire and motivate others during challenging times, such as the pandemic. This activity encourages not only language development but also the cultivation of a supportive and uplifting atmosphere.

Together, these activities provide a comprehensive approach to language learning within the context of the Coronavirus. Students not only enhance their grasp of grammatical structures and verb conjugations but also acquire essential communication skills for discussing recommendations, obligations, and positive messages in Spanish. Furthermore, by engaging with this topic, students gain a deeper understanding of the global health crisis and how language can be a powerful tool for conveying information and fostering positivity during challenging times.
