Activity 1: Guessing Transport Words In the first exercise, we’ve prepared an exciting game to test your knowledge of transport-related words.

When exploring “el tren” (the train), you’ll discover words like “billete” (ticket), “portaequipajes” (luggage rack), “andén” (platform), and “asiento” (seat). “El coche” (the car) introduces vocabulary such as “volante” (steering wheel), “limpiaparabrisas” (windshield wiper), “maletero” (trunk), and “freno” (brake). Lastly, “la bicicleta” (the bicycle) offers terms like “sillín” (saddle), “pedales” (pedals), “manillar” (handlebars), and “cadena” (chain).

Activity 2: Exploring Transport Questions The second exercise is all about exploration and conversation. You’ll encounter a series of questions related to different modes of transport, and you’ll have the opportunity to provide open-ended answers. These questions touch on various aspects of transportation, including your favorite modes of transport, professions associated with transportation, and the advantages and disadvantages of traveling by specific means.

Activity 3: Reinforcing Transport Vocabulary To solidify your grasp of transport vocabulary in a fun and memorable way, we’ve created a game that employs a memorization technique.
