Quito, Ecuador (Part 11) Presenting to the students at Academia de Español
After receiving the assignment to go to the market to buy fruits that I have never seen nor heard of; the next big challenge was to give an oral presentation in Spanish to the rest of the class about the various kinds of fruit and what I had learned about each. The other students all had to do the same, so we were pretty much in the same boat. Thank God for the Internet to do our research!
I actually found the challenge of the presentation to be fun. We were all sympathetic to each other’s plight so everyone paid attention. It was a great exercise to help us improve our language skills.
Here I am wowing(??) the class with my presentation.
Notice the fruit on the platters in the foreground. One of the teachers labeled each type with it’s name. Here are some of them closeup:
The Tuna fruit was really sweet and delicious. Once you understand it is not the same as the fish, you can really enjoy it!
After each presentation we all got an opportunity to sample each kind of fruit. I thought it was a great teaching exercise and an opportunity to learn more about Ecuador.
