Best Game to Get Students Speaking Spanish
Rey del Mundo is a great game to play in the classroom to get your students speaking Spanish. It is a version of hot potato. But, instead of passing something around physically, students are speaking and calling on their classmates to speak in Spanish. When it is that student's turn to talk, they are it. If the timer goes off while they are still it, then they move to the end of the line.
I have never had students not like this game. There are several variations to it, but the same basic concept is the same throughout, and students get really into it. It is one of the easiest ways to get my students speaking Spanish for 45-60 minutes without even thinking about it.
