If you are looking for some culture filled lessons this week that do not involve San Valentín & love, look into the current festival of carnaval! While French teachers are celebrating Mardi Gras, and Portuguese teachers are focused on the biggest carnival in Brazil, there are many Spanish speaking celebrations to look into.

This large celebration in Colombia would be a great opportunity to talk about music, dance, clothing, and cultural traditions the official website is in Spanish and very user friendly, as a authentic resource web quest. For example the excerpt from the schedule below would be a great authentic way to talk about days of the week, numbers, time and places.
