1 Jamie Vega Norcross High School

2 You will make an oral presentation on a specific topic to your class. You will have 4 minutes to read the presentation topic and prepare your presentation. Then you will have 2 minutes to record your presentation. In your presentation, compare your own community to an area of the (Spanish/French/German)-speaking world with which you are familiar. You should demonstrate your cultural features of the (Spanish/French/German)-speaking world. You should also organize your presentation clearly.

3 What is the importance of family for the individuals of your community?

4  How easy / hard was that for you?  How easy / hard would that be for your students?  Can you modify this to work with lower levels? Can students in level 1 do a similar activity?

5 The exam assesses cultural knowledge throughout, and not in a separate "culture" section. Students are not asked isolated questions about cultural trivia; rather, they are expected to demonstrate understanding of cultural information presented in print and audio texts. The best way to prepare students for this aspect of the exam is to use a variety of authentic materials during instruction and assessment. This will ensure that you continue to build and evaluate students' understanding of cultural products, practices, and perspectives.
