Video with por, haber, past participles, commands, from Coca Cola
You just never know what you’ll find surfing through corporate websites. Yes, sometimes you end up getting a cow on a motorcycle through an obstacle-ridden farm on Mundonick.com, and that’s fun, but corporate websites often contain videoclips that are pure gold for Spanish teachers. They’re exactly what we need–short, high-impact, high-interest, and repetitive.
Go check out this human-interest video on Coca Cola Mexico’s site. It’s got multiple uses of por, haber + past participles, and commands, and could be a launching pad into conditional: if you were giving advice to a newborn, what would you say? what would you tell him that you would do differently?
Another interesting topic is how Coca Cola talks about finding happiness.
I would have explored classroom 2.0 a lot sooner.
