One of my favourite things about being an English teacher is that it gives me the opportunity to introduce my students to other cultures!
Last week we reflected about our own culture!
I asked them the following question: Could you tell me 5 Spanish habits that foreigners may find shocking? How can we overcome the cultural barriers when we travel abroad?
I found this video of Chanelle, a Newyorker who spent three months in Spain and who talks about five weird Spanish habits that shocked her! The video is hilarious and very respecful at the same time.
This is a good listening practice, even if my students couldn’t undertand the whole video…they were able to identify the five weird things and find out that you can overcome the cultural gap with patience and RESPECT.
May the music be with you,
