Teaching Listening: ACTFL 2014 Presentation

Here is a hand out I created to accompany my presentation at ACTFL in San Antonio.

If you are interested in joining together with other Spanish language teachers to think about ways to use Radio Ambulante’s amaaaaazing stories to help teach listening as well as have access to authentic language and cultural materials in the Spanish language classroom, please leave a comment here.

Barbara is a Lecturer in Hispanic Studies at a small liberal arts college in Maine. Rumor has it this was also her alma mater. She used to work for a small liberal arts college in the cornfields of Ohio for almost 20 years as a teacher and language center director. Prior to these adventures in higher ed she taught high school Spanish and loved it. She wishes she had more time in her life to play with her dogs, write, read, swim, do yoga things and making stuff out of clay. To see her online portfolio please click here!

    Would love to see more materials to support the audio files of radio ambulante.

      Thanks Maggie! I am working on uploading what I have created with my students here. I am also speaking with the RA team about creating a repository on the RA site too. Stay tuned!
