Using Spanish Commercials in the Classroom

Using culturally authentic materials in the classroom not only increases  student interest, but allows the student to learn many things at once. We love to use commercials in our classrooms. We choose commercials that are funny, and/or tell a story, and/or show a cultural element. Students can learn and practice a variety of skills such as: listening comprehension, grammar points, vocabulary, and speaking skills. The activities can be short warm-ups or may take the whole class period. They can be used as an effective introduction to a unit or as a closure to a unit. I use this commercial for examples using ser and estar. Watch this cute video with William Levy and his M&M girlfriend.
