‘Aburrido’ and ‘divertido’… Are these the only adjectives our students know? Surely not! By now, they should have a good repertoire!
I have been looking at ways of helping my pupils learn other adjectives that are not the ‘most’ common and I have created these activities for them to practise in different ways…
1. They have to match up the synonyms. This will give them the option of knowing an ‘alternative’ in case they get stuck.
2. Now, they have to match up the opposites, which again is good for them to consolidate meanings but also helpful when they approach P/N/PN exam questions.
3. They translate these sentences to English and hopefully they can ‘secure’ their knowledge of adjectives once more.
4. They use the adjectives provided to make their own sentences. They are using the words, of course, but also practising their writing skills.
5. Pupils are meant to translate this short text to Spanish and they can recap some of the main adjectives as well as other words that they need to know.
