Video Summary
In this lesson, students talk about their sports likes and dislikes. They begin by reading their personal journal entries to review the previous day's vocabulary. Then students share their sports preferences in groups and put the information on a class graph. Next, they interpret an article about the sports interests of young Germans; they scan the article for familiar words and then listen as Ms. Garcia reads the text. Finally, students work in groups to describe the contents of a sports photograph.
