Práctica para el examen AP: Unidad 1 Etapa 2
Skill: guessing the main idea without understanding every detail in Spanish

1.  As you listen to an authentic news report about the economy in Spanish, take notes in the first column below.  Don't
     every try to understand every word.  Just concentrate on making a brief list of advice for consumers during difficult
     economic periods.  List as many pieces of advice as you can.  You may be surprised at how much you can understand!
2.  Read “
Inversores se refugian en el arte” and “Invertir en el arte del futuro” and take brief notes in columns 2 and 3.
     Concentrate on the topic of advice for consumers in a bad economic period.  You won't understand the whole article,
     but you will be able to get sense of the main idea of each article.  Notice the similarities and differences between
     the two articles.
3.  You will have one class period to write an essay in Spanish in which you blend and refer to each of the 3 sources.
