Sports Listening Video

This year my students have been following teams in La Liga. With the biggest game taking place over Spring Break, I used our first day back to watch a match recap and answer some questions in Spanish. I was able to download the youtube video and send it out on the iPads so that students could watch and listen at their own pace. Using iPads to listen to sports highlights in SpanishHere’s the video:

Resumen de El Clásico

  1. ¿Quién marca (scores) el primer gol: cómo se llama y qué número lleva en la camiseta
  2. ¿El primer gol de Real está marcado con el pie o la cabeza?
  3. ¿Cómo se llama el jugador del tercer (3) gol?
  4. ¿Qué color de camiseta lleva Real?
  5. ¿En qué minuto del partido marca Messi su primer gol?
  6. ¿Quién marca un penal? ¿Dispara (shoots) con el pie izquierdo o el pie derecho?
  7. ¿Cuál equipo recibe una tarjeta roja?
  8. En total, ¿cuántos goles marca Messi? ¿Cuántos goles anota CRonaldo?
  9. ¿Quién gana?

Read more about El Clásico. The league has their own Youtube Channel where you can get match highlights and news in Spanish. You can also do the same for other sports by using videos from ESPNDeportes.com or Deportes Univision. For those students who are sports fan, they can use their previous knowledge about the sport to help them understand the commentary in Spanish. Consider watching a segment or reading an article about March Madness, the NBA, NFL, MLB, or any other sports your students may be interested in.

  1. Hola! Great idea!! What app do you use to send out content to your students on their iPads? I saw Nearpod in action this weekend at #NECTFL14 and thought about using it to share content/presentations. Gracias, Yasmine

    We have something call “App Track”. We are able to send out material such as PDFs, movies, internet sites, out to individual (or groups of) iPads and they open them up as if it was an app. Our district also uses this to request/purchase new apps.
