¡Hola! Thanks for using our resources. This time, we are sharing a great PDF worksheet to practice the main vocabulary and structures to talk about the future in Spanish through a conversation cards activity. This material was designed for group work and preferably to be executed in the classroom with your teacher’s assistance.
Students form groups of four to participate in this speaking activity.
Each group of students gets a copy of the PDF worksheet. First, they must cut out the conversations cards, which include beautiful drawings and questions about people’s future in Spanish, such as: future vacation plans, their opinion on space and the planet, as well as technological and medical advances. Students must form a deck with the help of their classmates, shuffle it and take turns to draw a card, and then answer the question on it. Each student must speak for at least 30 seconds, otherwise the card must be returned to the deck. The student who speaks for 30 seconds straight using the right vocabulary and structures for the future (changing verb endings or using IR A + infinitive) will keep the card. The student who holds the most cards by the end of the game wins.

What the future holds…
In small groups, students talk about what they think the future will be like in five years from now. They should brainstorm a list of 5 reasonable and 5 crazy predictions for the future, things they would like to share with their classmates. They should get some feedback from their teacher in terms of grammar and vocabulary use. Finish the activity by having each group present their vision of the future in Spanish for the rest of the class. Once all the groups have presented, review on the 3 craziest predictions, as well as the 3 most reasonable things that could happen in the future.
