FREE MISC. LESSON - “10 Misconceptions About Spanish Language and Its Speakers”

by spanishplans
5th - 12th Grade


This 12 slide powerpoint features 10 statements which ask students to decide if they are true or false. Click ahead, and it will tell you the answer and also give an explanation.

These are 10 things that a lot of students don't know, but they definitely should. Features common misconceptions about the Spanish language worldwide and in the US as well as about the people who speak Spanish.

This powerpoint should last a 50 minute class period. Some slides also include additional links in the "notes" section for more information.

Great lesson to talk about stereotypes and perceptions. One of my biggest pet peeves is when a person is called "Spanish" because they speak Spanish, which is something I hear a lot, not just from children, but from adults as well. The goal of this lesson is to put an end to ignorance and inform people about what reality is.
