Watch the video of Uruguayan midfielder Lucas Torreira introducing himself.

Then, using the “¡Hola!” worksheet below, pupils should fill in the gaps to complete the transcript of what Lucas says.

Pupils can then write a paragraph about Lucas Torreira in the third person, using the information from the transcript they have just completed.

On the next page, pupils should write a paragraph about themselves, mirroring the structures modeled by Lucas.

Pupils can then present themselves to the class and create 2 profile cards about their classmates (and add a photo/drawing if they wish!)

Fútbol y tú

Download the “Fútbol y tú” worksheet below, which introduces pupils to some simple structures used when describing yourself or someone else.

Pupils can model the structures shown in the speech bubbles in pairs and then complete their own version in the space below. On the second page, pupils are introduced to some extra verbs in the 3rd person. Pupils should fill in the gaps and then write about their favourite player, also in the 3rd person. They should include as much information as possible, using all the structures and verbs they have used already.

¿Quién es?

Open the ¿Quién es? PowerPoint below and challenge pupils to work out who is being described, using the accompanying Player Sheet to help them. Pupils can also use the Player Sheets (or their own knowledge) to extend this activity, using the structures modeled in the PowerPoint.
