This section provides pedagogical activities for teaching pragmatics in Spanish and English. All lesson plans are research-based and include audio and written exercises. There are pedagogical resources for the teacher and the student: powerpoint presentations, student handouts, role-play activities, online role plays, and exercises to identify speech acts. The goal of this page is to provide online resources for teaching pragmatics in the classroom.
