Unidad 3 Etapa 2 ¡Deportes para todos!

Contexto

In ¡Deportes para todos! you’ve learned to talk about sports, express preferences, say what you know, and make comparisons. Sports are an exciting part of people’s lives—whether they are fans or play in leagues. Most people are fans and/or play for fun or recreation. What sports do you follow or play? Do you think the location of your city or town influences the sports that people play where you live?

Aplicación

On your own or with a classmate, draw a chart. Along the top, write the headings Deportes, al aire libre, en el campo, en la cancha, en el estadio, en la piscina, sobre hielo. Under the column Deportes, write the names of sports that you like or that interest up. After filling out the chart, calculate the average number of sports played outdoors or indoors. Then pick three sports and write three or more comparative sentences using the vocabulary you have learned. What are the best locations for a given sport? The worst?
