Irregular past participle at Lanzarote’s Montañas del Fuego

Posted by Alvaro

Lanzarote II: Las Montañas del Fuego is the second part –and last- of our short documentaries to teach the use of estar with the past participle. The first episode, “Lanzarote I: Las Atracciones Turísticas”, is an overview of all the beautiful sights of this exotic Spanish island, a perfect setting to explain the use of estar and the regular past participle.

In this second video we stop at Lanzarote’s main tourist attraction: El Parque Nacional de Timanfaya -also called Las Montañas del Fuego- to stare at the volcanic landscapes and to learn that the volcanoes are still alive. Travelling to such a wonderful spot, your students will see examples of the most common verbs that have irregular past participles: abrir, cubrir, descubrir, envolver, escribir, exponer, hacer, morir, poner, prever, resolver, romper, satisfacer and ver.

In addition to those verbs, your students will also learn new words related to Nature, such as erupción, laguna, lava, mar, olas, roca, temperatura and volcán. The activities included in the package cover that vocabulary and grammar, so they’ll prepare your students to get the most from the video. There’s also an audio file, exercises to review the past participle of regular verbs, a group game to practice the past participle and optional subtitles in Spanish for the video.

You can order and watch the 5-minute documentary in the icebreaker section of our site.
