¡Hola! Thanks for joining us. We have designed this nice worksheet for you to practice the vocabulary for modes of transportation in Spanish by solving two interesting vocabulary exercises. This vocabulary is quite essential to move around places and talk about transport in general.
Students could work by themselves or in pairs to solve the exercises on this worksheet.
Each student gets a copy of the PDF worksheet. For the first exercise, students must take a look at the drawings, and then match each mode of transportation in Spanish to its name by writing the numbers over the drawings on the empty boxes next to the names list. Students should be clear about the meaning and pronunciation of these words, so they should take a couple of minutes to look these words up in a dictionary if necessary. As for the second exercise, they should choose the mean of transport that best completes each of the blanks in the dialogue so that it makes sense. The teacher should provide feedback and make sure both activities in the worksheet are done correctly.
Students work in pairs to create a new dialogue about modes of transportation in Spanish, similar to the one in the worksheet. They could choose a city they would like to visit, imagine they are there as tourists, and then have a short conversation about the different means to go around town. There are other means of transportation besides the one in this didactic material, such as: “caballos” (horses), “camellos” (camels) and so on. The more creative, the better.
