Overview:

This novice-mid to novice-high Spanish activity walks students through the questions needed to plan an imaginary trip using a travel agent. Students will learn words related to traveling as they practice speaking with each other about planning a vacation. Throughout the activity, students will be acting as travel agents and vacationers, switching roles. Each role will be given a pre-printed card to keep them on task and focused.  One of the travelers will have to “plan a vacation” with the travel agent using the specifications of their traveler card. The travel agent will have to choose the best place (from the options on the travel agent cards) that fits the traveler's needs. Once the travel agent offers a “plan” to the traveler, the traveler will become the travel agent, and they will “plan” another vacation. Students will wrap up the activity with a provided reflection questionnaire.
