The focus of this workshop is to present a series of mini-tasks that will lead to a final project for three thematic units (the family, the city and the traditions).

The aim of these tasks is to foster the development of writing and oral skills at a beginning and intermediate level for students (grades 7 to 12) taking Spanish as a foreign language.  A brief discussion of the principles and strategies related to the task based learning approach will precede the analysis of the activities.

The workshop will be in Spanish and participants will be creating their own activities which will be shared throughout the session.
