    Please Note: Many of the activities on the Pathways Project OER Repository were created by upper-division students at Boise State University and serve as a foundation that our community of practice can build upon and refine. While they are polished, we welcome and encourage collaboration from language instructors to help modify grammar, syntax, and content where needed. Kindly contact pathwaysproject@boisestate.edu with any suggestions and we will update the content in a timely manner.  — The Pathways ProjectLooking for the English Version of this activity to adapt for your language?

    About the Boise State World Languages Resource Center (WLRC) Language Activity Repository

    The activities provided by the Boise State World Languages Resource Center (WLRC) serve as foundational activities which can be adapted by any language and scaled up or down on the proficiency scale. Many of these activities offer an English Version that is “language-agnostic” to provide language instructors from around the country a platform to remix these instructional materials, infusing them with their target language and culture! The activities within the Pathways Project OER Repository seek to help students solidify their interpersonal speaking and interpretive skills through task-based situations or communicative activities. These activities should be facilitated in the target language for approximately 90% (or more), per the recommendation of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages.

    Warm-up

    1. Begin by introducing the Can-Dos for today’s activity. 

    Today, we are going to discuss how we celebrate birthdays. How would you like your birthday party to look like? 

    2. Discuss when a student's birthday is and what kind of birthday presents one would like to receive. 

    What do you want to receive for your birthday?

    3. Discuss how students like to celebrate their birthdays.

    Main Activity

    1. Hand out the laminated invitation cards to students and pull up the powerpoint on to the screen projector. Distribute markers and whiteboards to students.                

    2. The students will be provided with likes and dislikes of a person who is having a birthday party.

    "Youngjin hates candy and likes toys."

    3. With that information, the students will determine what kind of birthday presents they would like to give.

    "I will give Lego as a gift to Youngjin."

    4. They will draw out their present on the whiteboard, and explain why they drew that object and where they can obtain that object.

    5. Then, we will discuss which floor of the department store students should go to in order to find the object they are looking for.

    "If you want to buy a toy, you have to go to the third floor."

    6. Lastly, the students will talk about how they are going to go to the place holding the birthday party, and which directions they should follow to reach their destination.
