¡Hola! Thanks for joining us. This time, we are sharing a great worksheet to practice some essential phrases and questions to have your first conversation in Spanish. This PDF worksheet includes three dialogues for beginners and a gap filling exercise about them.
Students could work individually or in pairs to solve the exercises in this worksheet.
Print the worksheet and hand each student a copy. This worksheet contains three short dialogues or conversation excerpts using different essential phrases and questions in Spanish based on topics such as: greetings and farewells, countries and nationalities, age and basic occupations. Students can see the options to fill in the gaps on top of each dialogue. It is very important for students to read the dialogues out loud to practice some pronunciation and make sure they actually understand what they are saying. The activity could be a good way to evaluate whether they have basic knowledge of the Spanish language or not.

Spanish dialogue substitution activity:
Students work in groups of four to fully understand the meaning of a dialogue in the PDF worksheet. After students have read out the short dialogue together and made sure to know the meaning and pronunciation of the phrases and questions in Spanish, ask them to read it out again but changing one piece of information (without writing it down) such as a greeting, e.g. “Buenas tardes” instead of “Buenos días” or “¡Es un placer!” instead of “¡Mucho gusto!”. The next person reads out the next line with the last person’s change in mind and making one more change themselves. This continues until all students in the group remember have swapped either a question or an expression in the dialogue they chose. The teacher should provide some feedback on pronunciation and word choice.
