¡A Conocerte Mejor!


  • What is the role of a TV talk show host?
  • What kinds of questions does the host ask?

What we are going to do?

You will act out a TV talk show where the host asks questions to get to know the guests.


  • Break up into groups of 3 or 4 people. No groups of 2 or 5.
  • Elect one member of your group to be the Host(ess).
  • The other 2 or 3 students will be the Guests.
  • You can be anyone you like (a famous or fictitious person/host). Feel free to make this funny and entertaining.
  • Brainstorm (on paper) appropriate personal questions for the Host(ess) to ask the Guests. (name, age, family, likes, dislikes, etc.)
  • Be sure to include questions using past and present tense verbs. (for example ?s about what the person did, does, etc.)
  • Write out a role-play in Spanish.
  • Make sure every group member participates.
  • Practice asking and answering the questions several times.
  • Each team will stage a mock TV presentation of their talk show.
  • Members of the class who are the audience, take notes during the TV show.
  • After each team has presented their show, Sr. Jannke will ask you questions about what you heard.
