In this B1 Spanish-English Mediation Worksheet students are asked to help a tourist find a nice place to have dinner that meets both his/her needs and expectations. It is a B1 cross-linguistic (Spanish-English) mediation task.

In the pre-mediation section, students revise comparative structures «Not as / so + adjective + as», «As + adjective + as» and the superlative.

As part of their strategy training, students reflect on different ways to simplify a text and they also practise how to link to previous knowledge.

This comprehensive mediation activity is excellent to train several mediation strategies and microskills:

  • expanding on the information
  • comparing several options
  • summarizing and providing conclusions
  • explaining a cultural concept
  • asking questions to check previous knowledge
