Te gusta-1

Remember “Te gusta” means “I like”, “no me gusta” means “I don’t like” and finally “Odio” means “I hate”. At this stage, I am not going to help you with some vocabulary and a couple of missing words from the first activity. Let´s see if you can remember and if you can’t you can either ask a member of your family or type the word in Spanish and check it using Google.

In primary school, children are often introduced to different cultures and their traditional foods through various activities. One popular activity that can engage students in learning about Spanish culture is a food writing activity focused on Spanish cuisine. This activity allows students to explore new foods and flavours and helps them develop their writing skills and cultural awareness.

Teachers can start by familiarizing students with well-known Spanish dishes like paella, tapas, and churros. Students can then select one dish to investigate and compose a report on. This report may cover the dish’s background, components, cooking techniques, and cultural importance. Additionally, students can be motivated to delve into the distinct tastes and components found in Spanish cooking, like saffron, olives, and chorizo.

Next, students can practice their descriptive writing skills by writing a detailed description of their chosen dish. This can include sensory details such as the dish’s appearance, texture, and taste. Students can also be challenged to use descriptive language to convey the cultural importance of the dish and its significance in Spanish cuisine. This can help students develop their vocabulary and writing skills while deepening their understanding of Spanish culture.

In addition to writing about the dish, students can explore Spanish food customs and traditions. This can include information about mealtimes in Spain, traditional Spanish holidays and celebrations around food, and if you are a native speaker you could also explain how you share this with your family so children can learn more about the Spanish culture. Students can also be encouraged to reflect on how their food traditions compare to those in Spain, fostering a sense of cultural awareness and appreciation.

To conclude the activity, students can share their writing with the class and discuss what they have learned about Spanish cuisine. This can include a tasting session where students can sample some traditional Spanish dishes, immersing themselves in the culture. By engaging in this food writing activity, students expand their knowledge of Spanish cuisine and develop their writing skills, cultural awareness, and appreciation for diverse food traditions.
