Pedimos a ChatGPT que nos elabore un plan de clase para trabajar la festividad de San Valentín en el aula de lengua extranjera desde una perspectiva creativa y esto es lo que nos propone.
Here’s a lesson plan for celebrating Valentine’s Day in a language class in a creative and different way:
Objective: To celebrate Valentine’s Day in English while improving communication skills and using creative approaches to language learning.
Warm up // Icebreaker (5-10 mins)
1. Ask ChatGPT the meaning of love (ANSWER PROVIDED BY CHATGPT)
As an AI language model, I don’t have personal experiences or emotions. However, love is a feeling of strong affection and connection towards someone, characterized by feelings of warmth, tenderness, and devotion. It often involves actions and behaviors that show care, concern, and support for the loved one. Love can be romantic, platonic, or familial and can bring joy, happiness, and a sense of purpose to people’s lives.
2. Take the chance to have a little debate on how AI might influence our daily lives and if it could replace humans in the future.
Engagement (10 minutes) & Language/Previous knowledge activation
1. Ask students if they know any current song which talks about love or heartbreak. Then, play any of the love-themed songs they suggested (in the target language) and ask them to note down as many of the words and phrases related to love as they can pick up.
2. Write the words and phrases on the board and encourage the students to provide a short definition for each word / phrase.
Exploration (10 minutes):
- Prepare some key expressions for the level and ask your students to work out their meanings and come up with examples with the help of ChatGPT. Here is a list of potential key words along with their definitions:
- “Wear your heart on your sleeve” – to openly show one’s emotions or feelings, especially in matters of love. Example: “She always wears her heart on her sleeve and everyone knows when she’s in love.”
- “Cupid’s arrow” – the sudden, irresistible, and often uncontrollable feeling of being in love. Example: “He was hit by Cupid’s arrow the moment he saw her.”
- “Love is blind” – the idea that love can cause one to overlook or ignore another person’s flaws or faults. Example: “Some people say love is blind, but I think it just gives you a different perspective.”
- “Love is in the air” – the feeling or atmosphere of love that can be felt or perceived. Example: “Whenever they’re together, love is in the air and you can feel the chemistry between them.”
- “Till death do us part” – a phrase often used in wedding vows, meaning to love and be committed to one another for the rest of their lives. Example: “When they exchanged their wedding vows, they promised to love each other till death do us part.”
- “Made for each other” – two people who are perfectly suited or compatible for each other. Example: “They’re so in love, they’re made for each other.”
- “The course of true love never did run smooth” – the idea that true love is often complicated and comes with challenges and difficulties. Example: “She knows that the course of true love never did run smooth, but she’s willing to face any obstacle for her true love.”
- Affectionate: characterized by feelings of fondness, caring, and warmth.
- Devotion: a strong attachment or loyalty to someone or something.
- Intimacy: a close and affectionate relationship with someone, characterized by a high degree of mutual trust and understanding.

2. Check their work for errors and provide feedback.

- Encourage the students to use the vocabulary they have learned so far.
Evaluation (10 minutes):
- Ask each student to share their creations with the class (either reading it aloud or having a partner read it).
- Use a rubric to evaluate the students’ use of vocabulary, grammar, and writing skills.
End of class (5 minutes):
