Future imperfect activity with supposition

Unlock the world of future possibilities with our exciting A2 level Spanish activity designed to hone your skills in formulating hypotheses using the future imperfect tense. This engaging exercise pits two teams against each other, each tasked with creating and deciphering intriguing scenarios. Get ready for a linguistic adventure where hypothesis-making is the name of the game!

Team 1’s Challenge: Crafting Hypotheses In the first part of the activity, Team 1 takes the reins as they craft a series of imaginative situations. These scenarios could range from everyday life events to fantastical adventures. The challenge lies in presenting these situations without explicitly revealing what’s happening. Instead, Team 1’s members will use the futuro imperfecto tense to construct hypotheses about the situations.

For example, Team 1 might describe a scene in which someone is packing a backpack with hiking gear. They could then formulate hypotheses such as “Quizás estaban planeando una excursión a la montaña” (Perhaps they were planning a mountain excursion). The key is to provide enough context for Team 2 to guess the nature of the scenario without stating it outright.

Team 2’s Mission: Deciphering Hypotheses With Team 1’s scenarios and hypotheses in hand, it’s Team 2’s turn to shine. Their mission is to decode the presented hypotheses and determine the corresponding situations. This task requires careful reading, deduction, and a firm grasp of the futuro imperfecto tense.

Upon receiving Team 1’s hypotheses, Team 2 might respond with guesses like, “Creo que están preparándose para una aventura al aire libre” (I think they are getting ready for an outdoor adventure). The goal is to accurately deduce the scenarios described by Team 1 based solely on the hypotheses provided.
