Lesson 6 - Datos Personales (Personal Information)


Language Focus: Numbers 0-100

Classroom activities: Give students index cards with different numbers on them. The students go around the room and ask people, "¿Cuál es tu número?" The students need to say their number in Spanish (but not show anyone their card). Then they need to work together as a group to try to line up in order with the smallest number on one side of the room and the largest number on the other side of the room.


Language Focus: The verb "tener"

Classroom activities: Have each student say one thing that they have and one thing that they don't have. You'll need to explain that "pero" means "but."

  • Example:
  • Tengo una computadora, pero no tengo un carro.

After all the students have said what they have and don't have, the students write sentences trying to remember what their classmates have and don't have (without asking the students or looking at another student's paper!). After all of the students have written their sentences, they try to see who was able to remember what everyone has and doesn't have.

  • Example:
  • Vanessa tiene una computadora, pero no tiene un carro.


Language Focus: Asking for personal information

Classroom activities: Have students practice reading the dialogue in pairs.


Language Focus: Filling out a form in Spanish

Classroom activities: Have students interview each other with the following questions. Tell them that they can make up imaginary information if they don't want to share their real information.

  • ¿Cuál es su nombre?
    Mi nombre es ________.
  • ¿Cuál es su apellido?
    Mi apellido es ________.
  • ¿Cómo se deletrea su apellido?
  • ¿Cuál es su dirección?
    Mi dirección es ________.
  • ¿Cuál es su número de teléfono?
    Mi número de teléfono es ________.
  • ¿Cuál es su dirección de correo electrónico?
    Mi dirección de correo electrónico es ________.


Have the students review any portions of the lesson that they made mistakes in on the quiz.
