Lesson 14 description

An unforgettable event

Silmara Ribeiro Moscatelli

An unforgettable event!

The lesson An unforgettable event! was designed for Spanish for Specific Purposes learners. The goal of this lesson is to analyse the most common verbs used for planning a protocol for a wedding that occurs during the pandemic.

This lesson is available in two formats, one hands-on and hands-off. The difference between these two formats is that in the first one, learners need to access SKETCH Engine to search for the linguistic data necessary to complete the activities. The second format does not require learners to access this tool as the linguistic data has been previously selected by the author, and is available to download in the lesson itself.

Regarding SKETCH Engine, learners are expected to be able to use the search options LIST OF WORDS and CONCORDANCE, the latter being the most relevant tool so that learners can determine the combinations with the verbs tener, haber and deber, as shown in the screenshot below.
