I’m not sure if it’s because the weather has changed or because I enjoy the luxurious days I actually get to sleep in, but I had a hard time getting out of bed this morning. I got on my phone and while checking various social media I came across this amazing idea to teach tú and usted (informal/formal) to students:
Isn’t that genius!?
I think this would work really well in both traditional/textbook and TPRS/CI classrooms. If you don’t have an old tie in the house you could use, I bet you could find a really cheap one at the local Goodwill or thrift store. This could also turn into a great lesson for boys about how to tie a tie, and you could turn it into a conversation about who wears ties, when it’s appropriate to wear ties, the origins of ties… the opportunities are endless!
